Taiwo Awoniyi will spend the 2019-20 season on loan at FSV Mainz 05 after sealing a temporary switch to the Bundesliga club in August 2019.

The striker initially joined Liverpool in August 2015 having starred for Nigeria in the U17 World Cup two years earlier and has since enjoyed loan spells with FSV Frankfurt, NEC Nijmegen, Royal Excel Mouscron (twice) and KAA Gent.

Awoniyi - who signed a new long-term contract with the Reds in the summer of 2018 - scored 14 goals during 2018-19 while with Gent and Mouscron and will now look to continue his development in Germany’s top flight.
