Wolves are enjoying another steady campaign in the Premier League and now The Athletic claim that Liverpool striker Divock Origi is still a target for Nuno Espirito Santo.
The Belgian talisman has barely featured this season for the Reds and has fallen down the pecking order on the back of Diogo Jota’s arrival – interestingly, from Wolves.
Origi has been a decent servant for Liverpool and will be fondly remembered for his heroics in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona.
He scored twice as Jurgen Klopp’s side overturned a 3-0 first left deficit and go onto win the competition during the 2018/19 campaign.
As a result, he will forever have a place in the hearts of Liverpool supporters even if he does decide to leave for another Premier League club.
The 25-year-old checked in at Anfield during 2014 and after a couple of stints out on loan, established himself at Liverpool.
He has made 147 appearances for the Reds, scoring 35 goals and registering 13 assists for the club.
He has made just two substitute appearances in the Premier League during 2020/21 and he’d surely relish first-team football.
After beating Chelsea 2-1 on Tuesday night, Wolves will have aspirations of climbing the table and getting back into Europe.
They will see the likes of Leicester, Southampton and Everton all flying high and see no reason why they can’t match their success.
TBR View – Origi would be a shrewd addition for Wolves
Given his age and ability, the man with 29 Belgium caps has lots to offer another club.
Just because he can’t get in the team at Liverpool isn’t really a reflection on the quality he possesses.
He can hold the ball up, score goals and his work rate would make him a useful addition to Espirito Santo’s ranks.
On £50,000-a-week he would fit in with Wolves’ wage structure pretty easily and it’s definitely a deal the club should look to do.
