Report: Eintracht Frankfurt eyeing Liverpool striker Divock Origi

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has emerged as a potential target for Eintracht Frankfurt.

According to Waldeckische Landeszeitung, the Bundesliga outfit could be on the tail of the Belgian due to only having one available striker at the moment in Andre Silva.

It is believed Origi is on a list of players Jurgen Klopp would be willing to let go this window if the price was right.

The report explains that while Eintracht are keen on Origi, a permanent transfer would be difficult for them.

The Reds value him at around £14 million, which is seemingly out of their budget, and so they could try for a loan.

 

Origi’s chances of playing regularly at Anfield have been slim for some time, with Roberto Firmino, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane all pretty much undroppable.

Klopp then has the likes of Diogo Jota and Xherdan Shaqiri in reserve.

TBR’s View –  Liverpool should allow Origi loan

He is hardly being used at the moment, and Liverpool should seek to facilitate a move for him this month.

Ideally they should sell, but January moves can be difficult, especially in the current climate.

Perhaps Michael Edwards should see if Eintracht would be willing to agree to a loan with an option-to-buy clause.
