Leeds: Whites tipped to make move for Divock Origi -Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United should make a move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi this summer, according to former England international Kevin Phillips.

The Lowdown: Origi the big-game player

Origi may not have been a regular starter for Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp, but he has still contributed hugely to their recent successes, being hailed as ‘exceptional’ by his manager.

The Belgian scored in the 2019 Champions League final win over Tottenham, also netting twice in the famous 4-0 win over Barcelona in the semi-final and scoring an injury-time winner in a Merseyside derby, proving that he can be a big-game player.

Origi could leave Liverpool this summer, however, and Leeds have been urged to sign him in the past.

The Latest: Phillips gets behind move

Speaking to Football Insider, Phillips talked up the idea of the 26-year-old heading to Elland Road, saying it is a move that makes sense:

“Maybe someone like Divock Origi. Maybe Leeds could nick in and get him from Liverpool. At that price? Certainly.

“With the time left in the window, I think we will see Leeds move for him, or a player like that.”

The Verdict: Ticks the boxes

Origi could be an ideal signing for Leeds, providing competition for Patrick Bamford in attack, with the latter tiring a little as last season went on.

The Liverpool man possesses pace, strength and versatility, thriving both centrally and out wide, not to mention scoring three goals at the international level for Belgium.

With the Reds seemingly willing to sell Origi, Leeds would be wise to least submit a bid for him, as Marcelo Bielsa looks to make his squad as strong as possible.
