‘Big risk’, ‘This is a good sign’ – Many West Brom fans react to transfer update concerning £8m-rated Liverpool player

West Bromwich Albion are reportedly still interested in £8 million-rated Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi, which has drawn an interesting response from many Baggies fans.

New Albion boss Valerien Ismael made midfielder Alex Mowatt the first signing of his Hawthorns tenure last week and you’d expect there will be a fair few more players through the door before the end of the summer window.

It appears Awoniyi could be among them, with Goal reporting that Albion have enquired about the 23-year-old but face competition from Championship rivals Stoke City and German side Mainz.

Despite joining Liverpool six years ago, the forward has just qualified for a UK work permit and the Anfield outfit are understood to want around £8 million for him this summer – with two years still left on his current contract.

The Nigerian striker spent last season out on loan with Bundesliga side Union Berlin – scoring five times and adding four assists in 22 appearances.

With Charlie Austin, Hal Robson-Kanu, Mbaye Diagne all having left the club, Albion do look short of options in forward areas ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
