Celtic could be in the mix to sign Liverpool forward Divock Origi on loan this summer, according to The Daily Record.
The Lowdown: Previous Origi links
Origi has been linked with a move to Parkhead on more than one occasion this year.
The first came back in March where he was tipped to move to Glasgow as part of a potential swap deal involving Odsonne Edouard.
The second came just last month, with 90min claiming Celtic were monitoring the Belgian forward with Liverpool ready to move the 26-year-old on.
The Latest: Possible loan move?
The Daily Record shared a story on Thursday morning, looking at five strikers who could complement Celtic’s transfer strategy.
One of those was Origi, with the report claiming that although a potential £10m transfer fee is a non-starter, the Hoops could be in the mix for a temporary deal, should the Reds make him available.
Should Celtic look to sign Origi?
Yes, ideal Edouard replacement!
No, look elsewhere!
The Verdict: A possible Edouard replacement?
Origi, described as ‘unreal’ by teammate Caoimhin Kelleher back in the 2019/20 season, has plenty of experience at the highest level.
Origi’s Anfield deal also expires next year, so perhaps a loan move with an obligation to buy could be explored by the Hoops, which may make more financial sense for all parties involved.
