Liverpool have signed Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi, with the player immediately joining FSV Frankfurt, the Bundesliga 2 side, on loan.

The 18-year-old becomes the 16th player to leave the club on loan this summer, following similar temporary moves for Samed Yesil (FC Luzern), Sergi Canos (Brentford), Joe Maquire (Leyton Orient) and Ryan McLaughlin (Aberdeen) in the past few days.

Liverpool reportedly beat Monaco and Porto to the signing of the Nigerian under-23 international, with the deal worth an initial £800,000 but could rise to £3m with add-ons.

Awoniyi told the official LFC website of his delight in signing for the club.

“This is the biggest club in the world and I’m privileged to be here,” he said.

“I’ll try to develop myself very well so that when I come back to Liverpool I’ll be able to add value to the team.

“When I’m in the red shirt, I will always give my very best to make the fans happy.”

Awoniyi has also played for his country at the U-17 and U-20 World Cups and earned a call-up to the Super Eagles in 2013.
