Nottingham have shown great ambition as they splashed out a record €20m (£17.2m), 10 per cent of which went to the striker’s former club Liverpool, who had him on their books for six years until he moved to Germany in 2021.

The Nigeria international has signed a long-term contract with Steve Cooper’s side and the club’s management are confident he will make a major impact in their debut season in the Premier League.

Forest owner Evangelos Marinakis has plenty of ambition after ending the club’s 23-year exile from the top flight.

Marinakis is determined to challenge in the prem and sees Awoniyi as an important figure who can fulfill his ambitions for the club.

The 24-year-old started his career at Liverpool in 2015 but never managed to make senior appearances as he completed several loan spells away from Anfield.

The Nigerian ace played for Frankfurt, NEC, Mouscron, Gent, Mainz and Union Berlin, among others, where he finally found his home.

The centre-forward stood out for the Berliners last season when he recorded a whopping 20 goals and five assists in 43 games in all competitions.

Awonyi was the sixth top scorer in the Bundesliga with 15 goals in 31 appearances, just five fewer than RB Leipzig star Christopher Nkunku and one more than Bayern star Serge Gnabry.

The striker is expected to be joined by Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson at the City Ground.

However, SunSport reckons Henderson’s loan deal from the club will not be announced until next week.
