As a result of Awoniyi failing to gain a work permit, the forward has been sent out on loan to the likes of FSV Frankfurt, NEC Nijmegen, Royal Mouscron and Gent in recent years.

The Nigerian is now with Belgium side Royal Mouscron for a second loan stint and has scored 12 goals in 37 appearances. 

Due to his work permit issues, the Reds are now considering cashing in on the forward and would listen to offers in the region of £10m for Awoniyi this summer. 

Jurgen Klopp is keen to add to his squad over the summer, however, the Reds are also set for a summer clear out, and it appears as if Awoniyi could be one of the first to leave the club on a permanent basis.
