Liverpool will sell Taiwo Awoniyi, with West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Fulham interested in the Anfield prospect, according to The Athletic.

It has been reported that Awoniyi has been granted a UK work permit, and that West Brom, Stoke and Fulham all have already shown interest in the 23-year-old striker.

Liverpool will sell, but the former Premier League champions want £8 million as transfer fee this summer, according to the report.

If Liverpool get £8 million for the 23-year-old striker this summer, then it would be a great pieces of business.

Remember how much the Reds actually paid for the 23-year-old.

Just £400,000.

The Guardian reported in August 2015 that Liverpool paid Imperial Academy £400,000 to sign him.

The youngster has not played a single match for the Liverpool senior team and has been out on loan at a number of clubs, including Gent, Mainz and Union Berlin, in recent years.

It is hard to see Awoniyi break into the Liverpool first team next season.

It would make sense for the Reds to sell the youngster and get some money for him.

It will be interesting to see how many clubs are willing to spend £8 million for the youngster.

Would West Brom, Stoke and Fulham be willing to spend £8 million on a 23-year-old who has not play a single minute in English football?

You would think not so, but they could well have been impressed by what the youngster has done away from England.

Wanting £8 million for Awoniyi is quite ambitious, but you never know, Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards could well pull it off.
