Awoniyi In Swedish Transfer Talks


Golden Eaglets striker Taiwo Awoniyi is discussing a transfer to Kalmar FF after he arrived the Swedish club along with his representatives.
The 16-year-old striker, who scored four goals as Nigeria won a record fourth U-17 World Cup in November, is to discuss the possibility of teaming up with the Swedish club.
Should talks progress as hoped, Awoniyi will undergo a medical and be given a pro contract when he is 18 next year.
According to, Awoniyi is already impressed with the facilities and warmth of the people he has met at Kalmar. The promising striker has other offers from Mexico, Sampdoria, Brecia, among others.
Meanwhile, former international Seyi Olofinjana, who is in Sweden with the Eaglets star, said his plan is for Awoniyi to go to a place where he can really develop to be a better player.
Olofinjana is the director of Awoniyi’s academy, Imperial academy.
“The key is for him to go to a place, where he can take the next step”, said Olofinjana, who incidentally started his professional career in next-door Norway.
