Determined to strengthen its side against formidable opponents in the Premier League scheduled to return in August, Nottingham Forest have signed Nigeria forward, Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin for a club record fee.
The 24-year-old joins newly promoted Forest on a five-year deal for a reported £17m.
Awoniyi scored 20 goals in 43 games across all competitions last season and becomes Forest’s first signing since gaining promotion back to the Premier League.
“It’s always been my dream to play in the Premier League,” said Awoniyi.
“Having spoken to [Forest boss] Steve Cooper about our ambitions and looking at Forest, with its great history, it’s a club that I want to be part of.”
