Wolves: Luke Hatfield talks up Divock Origi signing

Wolves: Luke Hatfield talks up Divock Origi signing -Premier League

Journalist Luke Hatfield has backed Wolves to complete the signing of Liverpool striker Divock Origi in the January transfer window.

The Lowdown: Origi linked with Wolves move

Bruno Lage’s side suffered heartbreak at the hands of Origi earlier this month, with his last-gasp strike at Molineux sealing a 1-0 win for the Reds.

Wolves have been linked with a move for the Belgian in the past and they could be eyeing up potential January additions in attack.

Origi has only played 38 minutes of Premier League action this season, suggesting a move away could benefit him, too.

The Latest: Hatfield talks up signing

Someone who sees the 26-year-old as a strong option is Hatfield, who told Give Me Sport that there is interest in him from Wolves:

“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: Ideal January option

Origi may rarely have been a regular for Liverpool but what he has achieved speaks for itself, famously scoring twice in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona in 2018/19, as well as finding the net in the final win over Tottenham.

The Belgium international has been described as a ‘monster’ by Jurgen Klopp, and at 26, he is at a good age for Wolves to snap him up in his prime.

That being said, Liverpool may be hesitant to sell Origi in January, with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane away on Africa Cup of Nations duty.

A summer move could feel more likely, with the Reds hero providing strong competition for Raul Jimenez – something Fabio Silva isn’t doing, having failed to score or assist in the league so far this season.
