Despite wanting to loan him to a club in England, Liverpool have sent Taiwo Awoniyi to Royal Mouscron in Belgium in order to gain more experience.
Already spending two seasons away from Anfield on temporary deals, the Nigerian starlet is getting used to being sent around Europe, with spells at FSV Frankfurt and NEC Nijmegen.
Now in yet another country, the 19-year-old gave an interview to DH in Belgium about it all, and explained his new teammates made him feel at home straight away, making him feel important, and not just some other signing to make up numbers.
Without an option to buy in the deal, this is purely a loan for him to develop as a player and get regular first-team football in hope he’ll be able to return to Merseyside and be a part of Jürgen Klopp’s squad one day, which he describes as his ‘ultimate dream’.
Wanting to improve ‘on a daily basis’, the former U17 World Cup champion will join a league where a lot of his compatriots are plying their trade, notably Moises Simon and Everton’s Henry Onyekuru, currently on loan at Anderlecht.
That should also help him settle in.
