Scottish Clubs Celtic, Rangers Chase Awoniyi

Scottish Premiership giants Celtic and Rangers are ready to compete for the transfer of Nigeria forward Taiwo Awoniyi, reports

Awoniyi is currently on loan at Bundesliga club Union Berlin from Liverpool.

The 23-year-old has scored five goals and recorded two assists in 14 league appearances for Union Berlin this season.

According to 90min, Celtic and Rangers are leading the chase for the forward, who has caught the attention of a number of clubs in Europe.

Awoniyi joined Liverpool in 2015, although failure to secure a work permit for the Nigerian talent has meant he has never made an appearance for the Reds.

Instead, he has spent the last five-and-a-half years on loan at various clubs in continental Europe and Union Berlin are his sixth different team.

Liverpool are now considering a sale as they could pocket more than £5m for a player they paid a relatively nominal fee for.
