Nottingham Forest are set to sign former Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin in a club-record move.

According to German publication BZ Berlin, Awoniyi has already said goodbye to his Union teammates and is on his way to England to complete his medical.

Forest will pay £17.5million for the Nigerian international which will make him the club's most expensive signing ever, surpassing the £13.5m spent on Joao Carvalho in 2018.

Awoniyi began his senior career at Liverpool in 2015 but never played a single minute for the Reds, instead being loaned out a staggering seven times to various clubs in Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium.

Awoniyi scored an impressive 20 goals and made five assists in 43 games for Union last season, helping the German club to a best ever Bundesliga finish of fifth.

Forest are in need of a new striker, with 34-year-old Lewis Grabban and Sam Surridge the only natural strikers at Steve Cooper's disposal, although he can also count on highly rated attacking midfielder Brennan Johnson to score goals.

Forest are also set to sign goalkeeper Dean Henderson on loan from Manchester United as Cooper prepares for the club's first Premier League season in 23 years.
