Liverpool fans comment as Taiwo Awoniyi leaves the club on loan

Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi has joined Bundesliga outfit Mainz 05 on loan for the entirety of the 2019-20 campaign.

The Nigerian has been with the Reds since 2015 but has not yet made a single appearance for the Premier League club.

Indeed, the 21-year-old was immediately sent on loan to FSV Frankfurt upon his arrival at Anfield, whilst he has also turned out for NEC, Royal Excel Mouscron and Gent on loan during a well-travelled career.

Liverpool are not exactly full of options in the centre-forward position at the moment.

But the decision has been made to send Awoniyi on loan to Mainz, who finished 12th in the Bundesliga last season.
