Tottenham are being tipped to make a late swoop to try and sign out-of-favour Liverpool striker Divock Origi before the transfer window slams shut next week, according to the Telegraph via the Daily Star.
Origi joined Liverpool from Lille in a £10m deal three years ago but the striker has struggled to establish himself as a first team regular under Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.
The 22-year-old has played just nine minutes of football in Liverpool’s opening four games this season and wasn’t even selected in the matchday squad for their Champions League play-off win over Hoffenheim last week.
Roberto Firmino is Klopp’s first choice striker while Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke are also ahead of Origi in the pecking order so he’s going to find regular football hard to come by.
The striker is understandably concerned as he wants to secure a place in the Belgian squad for next summers World Cup finals so it’s no surprise to hear a move could be on the cards over the coming days.
The Daily Star cite a report from the Telegraph that claims Klopp is willing to let Origi leave and Tottenham have emerged as surprise candidates to sign the young hitman.
Spurs were linked with the Belgian attacker before he moved to Anfield and with Mauricio Pochettino keen to further strengthen his squad, the north Londoners could now resurrect their interest.
Pochettino hinted that Vincent Janssen could leave after struggling to settle following his arrival last summer so Origi could be lined-up as a potential replacement for the Dutchman.
Obviously Harry Kane is the number one striker at Tottenham but they have very little back-up behind him so Origi would get far more action in London than at Liverpool, especially if Janssen does depart.
Therefore, a move could suit all parties but we’ll have to wait and see how things develop as time is running out to get a deal done before the window closes on Thursday night.
