KAA Gent of Belgium striker, Taiwo Awoniyi might join the large array of Nigerian players plying their trade in Turkey, as an offer has reportedly been put on the table for him by a top club in The Land of The Ottoman.
Footballlive.ng gathered that, considering Awoniyi’s lost status at Gent, where he has dropped out of the pecking order, his mentors have looked towards the Turkish Super Lig for his saving grace.
This is a startling transformation from the high-points of glory he reached last season, while on loan at Royal Excel Mouscron in the same country, but the lad has dropped in value once again.
The UAE 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup revelation, who previously toiled in Germany and Holland, could now be on the move again, yet still on loan from Liverpool of England, and Turkey could be his next port of call.
Additional information in this regard indicates that Awoniyi, who was recently rated the biggest flop at Gent halfway through the season, after he failed to score a goal in the league, is now at the crossroads.
A bid from Turkey has been received for Awoniyi, who now has to decide whether to extend his loan spell at Gent or move on.
Strong pointers, though, indicate that Awoniyi’s loan deal at Gent could be cut short on the prompting of the 21-year-old ex-youth international.
