Liverpool have placed a £15m transfer tag on striker Taiwo Awoniyi. According to The Liverpool Echo, Liverpool will demand £15m for Awoniyi amid interest from CSKA Moscow.
Awoniyi spent last season out on loan and he is still struggling to obtain a work permit. He has not yet made his debut for Liverpool and might struggle to do so for the foreseeable future.
Liverpool could cash in on the Nigerian forward with a few clubs after him. As well as CSKA Moscow, clubs from France, Belgium and Germany (Schalke and Mainz) reportedly want him.
The Reds have not yet made their definitive decision on his future. Jurgen Klopp is happy to loan Awoniyi out again as he waits for international clearance but he could be solved if a £15m bid comes in.
Awoniyi impressed in Belgium last season, especially in his second spell. At Royal Excel Mouscron, the 21-year-old scored 11 goals in just 16 appearances to show his talent.
But Liverpool fans took to Twitter to discuss these £15m exit rumours. Here are some of the best tweets.
