Currently on loan at Royal Excel Mouscron, Taiwo Awoniyi will not be featuring for Liverpool next season, as SudInfo in Belgium report he will be spending yet another season abroad to hone his skills before returning to Anfield.
Before that happens, however, Jürgen Klopp wants to have a closer look at the Nigerian striker, as the Belgian outlet report the German manager will take the 20-year-old on tour to the United States first for the club’s preseason.
Set to play the likes of Manchester City and Borussia Dortmund over the summer to prepare the next campaign, the Reds will be giving some of their youth some time on the pitch, while other members of the squad recuperate from their time in Russia.
SudInfo got in touch with board members at Liverpool, who weren’t in a rush to sort out Awoniyi’s future just yet despite various clubs like Club Brugge and Mouscron keen on bringing him in on loan.
On top of this, the Belgian outlet claim the Reds will also extend the young forward’s contract until 2022, confirming their belief he could become a valuable asset at Anfield if he continues to develop as he has done over the past couple of seasons.
