Awoniyi signed for the Berlin based team in a club record deal from Liverpool last summer, after a loan spell with them the previous season.
He settled quickly and the outcome is his 17 goals contribution in the Bundesliga to help Union Berlin seal a Europa League ticket.
His outstanding performances caught the attention of Premier League new Boys Nottingham Forest, who themselves broke the bank for a club-record deal of £17.5m to sign the Nigerian.
Taiwo Awoniyi’s task in the new Premier League season will be to help Forest retain the topflight status.
