Awoniyi reveals why he dreams of playing Premier League

Union Berlin striker Taiwo Awoniyi has expressed his desire of playing in the Premier League.

The Nigeria international moved to the German capital on a permanent basis in a £6.5million (€7.5m/$9m) deal from Liverpool in 2021.

At the Stadion An der Alten Forsterei in the ongoing campaign, Awoniyi has contributed nine goals in 18 league appearances for Urs Fischer’s side. Although he has four seasons left with the Berlin-based outfit, he has not hidden his desire to represent an English top-flight team in future. “The Premier League is my dream. Everyone knows that, even here at the club,” Awoniyi told Kicker.de. “If I lived in England, it would be easier for my wife and child, if only because of the language. In addition, my sister and a brother live on the island.”
