Former Nigerian forward, Jonathan Akpoborie believes Super Eagles striker, Taiwo Awoniyi has the potential to flourish with his new club, Nottingham Forest in the Premier League.
Recall that Awoniyi joined Nottingham Forest who just gained promotion from the Championship to the Premier League last season.
The Nigerian international, who finished last season with Bundesliga side, Union Berlin, and scored 18 goals in all competitions before he joined Steve Cooper’s side, is hoping to help the former European champions cement their place in the top tier of English football after a 23-year absence.
Reacting to his move, the former Wolfsburg star told Completesports that Awoniyi won’t have any issue adapting to the pace and physical play of the Premier League.
“It’s a big move for Taiwo Awoniyi to have joined Nottingham Forest regardless of the fact that they just gained promotion to the Premier League.
“I am very positive that Awoniyi will adapt easily in the Premier League because he possessed the potentials needed as a striker to excel. He has pace, goal sense and physical strength to cause any defenders serious nightmare.”
