According to The Independent, out-of-favour forward Divock Origi could be on his way to Spurs, as the striker presses for more game-time opportunities.
The Belgian attacker signed for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool after a number of impressive displays in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
However, since making the move, the striker has failed to earn himself a regular place in Klopp’s first team.
Now, with Liverpool linked with pacey Monaco youngster Thomas Lemar while also expected to land Naby Keita in 2018, Origi’s pursuit of regular game-time may lead him to another club.
According to The Independent, Divock Origi’s father has revealed that the 22 year old may end up joining Tottenham before tomorrow’s deadline.
“Divock has to leave Liverpool to get more playing time,” He said to DH.be.
“Tottenham is a possibility, but there is also interest from France and Germany.”
With Spurs currently lacking depth in attack, Origi’s versatility up-front could be a real asset to Mauricio Pochettino this season, who intends to fight on both the domestic and European front.
However, it is yet to be seen whether or not the Belgian will be comfortable playing second-fiddle to two-time golden boot winner Harry Kane, who presents an immovable obstruction to regular game-time.
Would like to see Origi sign for Spurs? If so, how much would be willing to pay Liverpool for his services?
