Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi has downplayed rumours as regards his future at the club, as he focuses on making the German team proud.

Awoniyi bagged 15 league goals at the 2021/22 German Bundesliga season and that has only enhanced his reputation as one of the league’s best strikers.

The former FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Mouscron, KAA Gent and Mainz 05 striker netted 20 goals in all competitions.

Despite having four more years at Union Berlin the 24-year-old is still being linked with a host of elite clubs in Europe.

When Awoniyi was asked in an interview at Kwara Stadium Complex whether they should be contacting him in another club next season he replied: “For now I still have a four-year contract with Union Berlin and I respect it,” he informed Futbalgalore.com.ng.

“Everyone knows I’m a guy that loves dreaming, in life they said we should never stop dreaming. I will keep my dreams alive but for now I’m still a player of Union Berlin until I leave the club. So when it comes to question surrounding my move I think it’s meant for my agent,” he concluded.

The Nigerian striker joined Liverpool back in 2015 but work permit issues meant he never made his competitive debut for the Reds.

Awoniyi was farmed out on loan seven times before finally leaving permanently last summer, joining Union Berlin.

Agent Max Brommer said that rumours of a move to West Ham are ‘definitely not true’.

Awoniyi fits the bill as a quick and very strong striker, so it’s understandable that West Ham are keen.

Brommer has left the door open for Awoniyi to head to England, but he seemingly isn’t expecting a move to West Ham any time soon.
