Former Nigeria U-23 star, Taiwo Awoniyi’s market value is on the rise again following his impressive displays in the colours of Union Berlin in the German Bundesliga.
With 16 starts in 19 appearances so far this season, scoring five times with three assists, the Nigerian’s value was only destined for the top and this is what has happened following Transfermarkt’s updates in the values of players in the Bundesliga.
Awoniyi has now soared back to his highest market value ever, €4.5m which he first achieved in June 2019 while playing in the Belgian Jupiler league with Royal Excel Mouscron where he scored seven times in 25 appearances.
With another loan move this time to the German Bundesliga where he pitched his tent with Leon Balogun’s former club, Mainz 05,Awoniyi’s market value dropped twice. It dropped by 500 thousand euros in December of 2019 to €4m before dropping further five months later to €3.2m.
This was expected as the Liverpool owned player made only five starts in 12 games for Mainz 05,scoring once and provided no assist.
While Awoniyi’s market value rose, that of Jamilu Collins who dropped to the Bundesliga 2 with his relegated club, Padeborn and lost his first team shirt in the Super Eagles dropped from €2m just three months ago to €1.5m.
Collins’ value has been dropping since the begiinning of last year after reaching a career high of €3m in October and December of 2019.It first dropped to€2.4m in April before dropping further to €2m in November.
Kevin Akpoguma (TSG Hoffenheim) and Emmanuel Dennis (on loan at FC Koln) both retain their current valuations of €6m and €11m respectively while Anthony Ujah who has been inactive at Union Berlin since the start of the season due to injury expectedly dropped from €1.2m as at April last year to €1m in the latest valuation
