Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest are closing in on a record £17.5m deal for Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi.

Bundesliga club, RB Leipzig are also rumoured to be interested in the Nigerian international, but is thought to have set his heart on a move to the Premier League.

Awoniyi scored 20 goals and provided five assists in 42 appearances across all competitions for Union Berlin last season.

Nottingham Forest are preparing for life in English top-flight for the first time this century.

Awoniyi joined Liverpool in 2015 and had loan spells at six different clubs without making the breakthrough at Anfield.
