Nigeria forward Taiwo Awoniyi is seeking a permanent move away from Liverpool.
Awoniyi linked up with Liverpool in 2015 but has failed to make a competitive appearance for the Reds due to his inability to secure a work permit.
He has spent time on loan outside the club for the last five years.
The 23-year-old is currently on loan at FC Union Berlin, after previous spells at FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Mouscron (twice), and Genk. Last season, he was at Mainz.
“It is my dream to play for Liverpool,” he told ESPN.
“But me playing for Liverpool has to do with getting my work permit.
“Without it, there is no chance for me discussing playing for Liverpool for now.”
As a result, he discussed making a permanent move away from Anfield this past window.
He said: “This season was maybe a bit tough to make the decision because honestly, I was hoping to leave permanently.
“Liverpool has been great, they have been so supportive and we always talk with the director and every time, they tell me to be patient.
“But the reason I discussed something permanent this season was just that I felt most loans I have been to, have not really been the way I want it.
“And I felt like it happens that way because the loan players get less of an advantage than the players of their own club.
“That was what made me think, okay, maybe it’s time to find a home with my family.”
