Many Liverpool fans were elated by reports that the Reds are considering swapping Divock Origi with Schalke defender Ozan Kabak.
The 25-year-old forward has been heavily linked with a move away from Anfield, with Wolves being named as one of the interested parties.
But with Jurgen Klopp’s side currently going through a horrendous injury crisis, with no established centre-backs available for selection, Liverpool are apparently arranging a swap deal that could involve the 6 foot centre forward leaving Anfield.
According to Sky Germany (via Liverpool Echo), the Merseysiders are prepared to offer Schalke a swap deal for Kabak to bolster their defensive line, as their Premier League title challenge nears the halfway point.
Would you approve of Liverpool swapping Origi with Kabak?
Unsurprisingly, these supporters were pleased with the report and pleaded with the club to get the move done next month.
Fans urge club to make Origi swap happen
“I am thankful for what Origi has done but surely this is a no brainer. I hope it happens.”
“I’m buzzing about this”
“This better be true”
“Sounds like a good deal, just make it happen”
“Make it happen just to move on deadwood”
