Liverpool: Divock Origi backed to seal potential Wolves move -Liverpool Transfer Rumours

Liverpool striker Divock Origi could potentially seal a move to Wolves in the January transfer window, according to Express and Star reporter Luke Hatfield.

The Lowdown: Origi a Liverpool legend

The 26-year-old has put together an iconic Reds career, not always performing consistently but producing huge moments time and time again.

Origi recently scored a dramatic stoppage-time winner away to Wolves, adding to similarly huge goals against the likes of Barcelona, Tottenham, Everton and Newcastle United down the years, leading to Jurgen Klopp calling him a ‘legend’.

It could be that the striker’s time at Liverpool comes to an end in the near future, however, with a lack of football seeing him fail to start in the Premier League this season.

The Latest: Journalist talks up Wolves move

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Hatfield talked up the idea of Origi moving to Wolves, having been linked with a switch to Molineux in the past:

“Wolves have been linked with him before, obviously they like the look of him.

“They need someone to back up Raul Jimenez, they have Hwang, who’s a different player, but other than that, who have they got? You’ve got Fabio Silva, who’s a young lad, and we’re yet to see the best of him, so I think a striker option would be interesting.”

The Verdict: Wrong time to sell

Origi appears relatively content at playing a bit part role for Liverpool but he could feature prominently in the coming weeks, highlighting the need to keep hold of him.

With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane on Africa Cup of Nations duty next month, the Belgian will be needed to step up to the plate and fill the void, hopefully adding to his two Premier League goals this season.

It would, therefore, be a big surprise if Liverpool allowed Origi to leave in January but a summer exit could happen if he wants it to.

From a Reds perspective, however, it seems logical to keep hold of him for as long as possible, given his penchant for popping up with huge goals, not to mention an overall record of 40 goals in 167 appearances.
