Italian outlet Corriere Dello Sport have claimed that Inter have been offered the chance to sign Liverpool striker Divock Origi on loan as they scour the market for Romelu Lukaku cover – and the Reds ready to sanction a loan.
Origi, 25, has struggled for game time this season, being afforded just four Premier League appearances which have totaled a combined 12 minutes of action. He has netted just one goal in his 10 matches, in all competitions.
Clearly, his future is expected to be away from Anfield and if he does not leave this month – his chances of being included in Belgium’s Euro 2021 squad are over. A loan move until the summer could be on the agenda.
CDS claim that Inter and Antonio Conte have been offered the chance to sign the former Lille striker on loan – as Inter eye a back-up striker for Origi’s national teammate. The report says Liverpool are ready to sanction a move.
TBR’s view – If Origi needs game time, Inter is not the team
Origi needs to play football. He needs to join a team where he is first choice and remind everyone why he joined Liverpool in the first place – reproducing moments like his Barcelona brace or a strike in the final against Spurs.
At Inter, he would have to compete with Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez. Is Origi going to start? No. Is he going to have the chance to score between five and 10 goals and catch Roberto Martines’s attention? No.
He needs to join a team where is the first name on the team sheet.
