“It’s alwaays been my dream to play in the Premier League and having spoken to (Forest manager) Steve Cooper about our ambitions and looking at Forest, with its great history, it’s a club that I want to be part of,” Awoniyi said.

He was a key figure for Union last season, scoring 20 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions as they finished fifth in Bundesliga and secured a spot in the Europa League.

Awoniyi was a Liverpool player from 2015-2021 but did not make a single first team appearance for the club, and was sent out on loan several times.
