He has spent time on loan outside the club for the last five years.
“It is my dream to play for Liverpool,” he told ESPN.
“But me playing for Liverpool has to do with getting my work permit.”
“Liverpool have been great, they have been so supportive and we always talk with the director and every time, they tell me to be patient.”
“And I felt like it happens that way because the loan players get less of an advantage than the players of their own club.”
Awoniyi has scored once in seven appearances for Union Berlin this term, a goal the striker says has given him more confidence.
“Every striker wants to score. I am a player that also wants to work for the team. And to make the work you are doing on the field count is when you score the goals.”
