Recently speaking to the BBC explaining the problems with work permits and how it might cost him a future at Liverpool, Taiwo Awoniyi could be on the move in the summer.
Currently enjoying himself at Royal Excel Mouscron in Belgium, the Nigeria U23 international has attracted a lot of interest in the Jupiler Pro League, which DH take a look at on Thursday.
The news outlet explain Awoniyi will ‘certainly’ leave Anfield if he doesn’t get his work permit in the summer, clubs are already lining up to try and convince him to join them.
The top 5 in the Belgium are said to be ‘on the look-out’, which includes Anderlecht, who were reportedly already interested last summer.
A lot could depend on what the club decide to do with Landry Dimata, currently on loan from Wolfsburg, but for whom the Belgian side have an option to buy.

If they decide against lumping on the Belgium U21 international, who is currently injured with cartilage damage, then Awoniyi could certainly be the ideal replacement.
DH also don’t reckon the Nigerian will be that expensive, as Liverpool don’t have a huge need for him.
Ideally, the youngster would want to stay at Anfield, but he knows that might not be possible, so if he does leave, why not return to a league where he has had success in the past.
At least, he has done with Mouscron, as he’ll want to forget his Gent spell.
