Awoniyi has been tipped to leave in the summer transfer window after having an excellent season which has seen him net eighteen goals in all competitions.

German Bundesliga side, Union Berlin have identified Stephen Odey, a Nigerian international, as a possible successor for Taiwo Awoniyi.

Awoniyi has been tipped to leave in the summer transfer window after having an excellent season which has seen him net eighteen goals in all competitions.

Anthony Ujah, another Nigerian international striker on Union Berlin’s books, has two months left on his contract, and it seems doubtful that it will be renewed.

Union Berlin have already begun their search for Awoniyi’s successor and have identified Odey as a possible transfer target. AllNigeriaSoccer reported. 

The former NPFL youngster will however not go for a very cheap valuation, with Randers hoping to get 4.5 million euros for him (approximately N2b in Nigerian currency).

Odey has made 29 appearances in all competitions since joining Randers last summer, scoring 13 goals and providing two assists in that time.

The East Jutland club has a deal with the 24-year-old until June 30, 2024.

Die Eisernen continue to enjoy outstanding performances from the Super Eagles striker. He scored the game-winning goal for Union Berlin in a 1-0 victory over Cologne.

Awoniyi was left out of Nigeria’s roster for the match against Ghana but didn’t let it weight him down as he led his club side to victory.

Union Berlin welcomed Cologne to the Stadion An der Alten Försterei yesterday. Having lost only one of their previous five games, Cologne were in seventh place, two points ahead of eight placed Union Berlin on the Bundesliga table.

In the first half, Cologne was limited to just five attempts on goal, all of which were unsuccessful, as the first half concluded in a goalless draw.

Urs Fischer’s men boasts one of the best defenses in Germany’s top level.

The breakthrough for Union Berlin came in the second half, when Awoniyi was rewarded for his tenacity. He capitalized on a sloppy ball from Cologne defender, Jonas Hector, to score from close range.

Union held on for the 1-0 victory in the last minutes of the game. With the win, they move up to seventh place, three points shy of a Europa Conference League spot.

The Nigerian is also tied with Sebastian Andersson’s club record of 12 goals in a season set in 2019/20.

English Premier League clubs, Newcastle United, West Ham United, Southampton and returnees Fulham are reportedly interested in signing the 24-year old.

“It’s normal in football that when you begin to make a name for yourself, bigger teams will come knocking at the door.

“I am very happy for the players when they can get to the next level, but it also doesn’t help me as a coach when good players leaves but that’s sadly football.”, Fischer Urs said.

It was a very, very long time, but I fought my way back”. – Anthony Ujah delighted to resume football after 20 months injury lay-off

Union Berlin lost 3-0 at home to title-chasing Borussia Dortmund, with Ujah playing the final 18 minutes. It was the Nigerian forward’s first outing in the Bundesliga since June 2020 against Fortuna Dusseldorf.

He scored a goal and provided an assist before suffering a knee injury that necessitated two procedures.

Despite the defeat in front of their adoring fans, Ujah was glad to have won the year-and-a-half-long war. “I’m very happy to be back on the pitch. It was a very, very long time, but I fought my way back,” Ujah said, as per Bz-Berlin.

For the time being, Ujah may have limited playing time, with Taiwo Awoniyi being Union Berlin’s main striker. The trio of Sheraldo Becker, Kevin Behrens, and Andreas Voglsammer are also ahead of him in the pecking order.

However, the former Mainz striker is a nine-year veteran of Germany’s top flight, and vows to be ready when the time comes.
