 Montpellier, Leganes Among Clubs Monitoring Awoniyi As Liverpool Plan To Cut Short Loan Spell
For the second consecutive winter transfer market, Liverpool have plans to recall Taiwo Awoniyi from his loan spell.

Goal.com's Neil Jones has reported that the world champions are likely to recall the Nigerian from Mainz before the close of the January transfer window amid interest from other European clubs.

Around this time last year, Liverpool cut short Awoniyi's loan spell due to a lack of playing opportunities and the striker is in the same predicament as he was at Gent during the first half of the 2018-2019 season.

French Ligue 1 clubs Montpellier, Brest and Nimes, Besiktas from Turkey, and La Liga duo Leganes and Real Mallorca are among the clubs monitoring the situation of Awoniyi with a view to a transfer.

Of the 18 matches played by Mainz 05 in all competitions, the former Nigeria U23 international has been involved in only six games, logging 151 minutes.

Since making his full debut against Fortuna Düsseldorf on October 19, 2019, Awoniyi has not started a single game in the Bundesliga.

The 22-year-old previously spent time on loan at NEC Nijmegen and FSV Frankfurt.
