Wolves reignite interest in Liverpool’s Divock Origi

Origi’ times at Liverpool

Divock Origi joined Liverpool in July of 2014 from French outfit, LOSC Lille for a fee in the region of £11 million.

Since joining Liverpool Origi has made 79 appearances across all competitions, in which he has scored 22 and assisted seven.

However, Origi has not been a regular feature in Liverpool’s first team for some time now.

Origi spent the 2017/18 season on loan at German outfit Wolfsburg were he made 37 appearances, scored seven and assisted three.

Since returning to Anfield though, Origi’s game time has been very limited.

The Belgian has made just two first-team appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side this campaign.

Wolves want Divock Origi on loan

The first of which came as a sub in Liverpool’s shock 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League.

The second of which came in Liverpool’s most recent game vs Everton on Sunday.

The game looked certain to be a draw with neither side creating too many clear-cut chances.

However, Virgil van Dijk would smash the ball into the air inside the Everton penalty area. It would then come down and force Jordan Pickford to spill it onto the crossbar.

When the ball came back down Origi would run onto it and tap it in to make it 1-0 to Liverpool in the 96th minute.

After Origi scored the winner vs Everton, The Times are reporting Wolves, who were interested in loaning Origi in the summer, have reignited their interest in him.

Given his lack of playing time at Liverpool this season, Origi may be open to joining Wolves on loan.
