Awoniyi and his agent are meeting with officials of the English Premier League side in Greece. We exclusively gat.d that an agreement on his wages have been reached all that is left is for a transfer fee to be agreed with Union Berlin.
24 year old Awoniyi is keen on the move to England as it is the wish of his wife to settle t.. His desire made him to turn down a move to fellow German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig.
A fee of €20m has been pegged as his buy out clause with Nottingham Forest expected to meet it with ease. His former club Liverpool are due a percentage from his proposed sale as they had a sell on clause inserted in the deal that took him to the club last summer.
