The 23-year-old is currently on loan at Bundesliga outfit Union Berlin but could soon be in line for a permanent move back in the UK as Scottish Premiership giants Celtic and Rangers lead the race for his signature (90min).
The report claimed that the Old Firm rivals are among a host of clubs interested in the striker, with a £5m-plus fee mooted as a likely asking price.
After making a strong start to the season scoring five top-flight goals, Awoniyi could possibly join Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard at Rangers as he looks to further boost his side’s crusade towards the Scottish title.

It seems, unfortunately, that Awoniyi’s Liverpool dream is unlikely to become a reality anytime soon.
When he signed, there could have been high hopes that he would soon become a major part of the Anfield setup, but the ongoing work permit issues and the Reds being in a far better place now than when he arrived means that his chance will likely never come.
