According to a recent report from Birmingham Live, Liverpool’s Divock Origi snubbed Wolves in the summer after they made an approach for his services, but his stance could have changed in light of his struggle to break into the first-team at Anfield.
It was never going to be easy for Origi in his bid for first-team opportunities with Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge ahead of him in the pecking order, and so far it’s posed too much of a challenge for the 25-cap Belgium international to conquer.
Without a single appearance in a Liverpool shirt yet this season, Origi would be wise to consider a January move away from the club in order to acquire first-team opportunities.
The report from Birmingham Live has touted Molineux as a potential destination, and on paper it’s a switch which would make sense for all parties concerned.
Origi showed enough potential during his loan spell with Wolfsburg last season to suggest that he can thrive in one of Europe’s elite leagues, but he will continue to stagnate without regular first-team football.
With only Raul Jimenez offering competition for a starting berth at centre-forward, Origi would add a new dimension to the attack which would stimulate improvement from the Mexico international and provide Nuno with a healthy selection dilemma.
Nuno may not be the most experienced manager in English football but his exciting style of football has enabled Wolves to create plenty of chances so far this season, and that will suit Origi at a stage when confidence could make or break his career.
A move to a club who are desperately struggling for ideas further down the table could be detrimental to Origi’s development, but under Nuno there is no doubt that he would have an excellent opportunity to showcase his potential and find the back of the net on a consistent basis.
Origi’s career is currently in danger of slipping into insignificance but that could all change with a January move to Molineux.
