Nottingham Forest forward Taiwo Awoniyi has revealed his eagerness to face Liverpool in the Premier League this campaign.
The 25-year-old Nigeria international moved to the promoted side from Bundesliga outfit Union Berlin before the season kicked off.
His arrival at the City Ground saw him return to England having signed for Liverpool on August 31, 2015, but was immediately loaned out to German team FSV Frankfurt.
Awoniyi did not have a chance to represent Liverpool in the Premier League as he featured for several clubs on loan, including Belgian club Royal Excel Mouscron, Gent, Mainz 05 and Union Berlin.
However, on July 20, 2021, Awoniyi rejoined Union Berlin, this time on a permanent contract and later completed a move to the promoted side on a five-year deal.
“For me to be honest, I’ll say Liverpool because I’ve been there before. I know some of the players there. I’d be very excited to play against them,” Awoniyi told Super Sport YouTube Channel with regards to the team he would be more excited to face.
Liverpool will travel to face the Tricky Trees on October 22 in their first meeting of the season at City Ground.
