He said: “Divock Origi is somebody I know they looked at in the summer, his agent has a very close connection, should we say, to the West Ham board so that is a transfer I could see happening in January.
Whirlwind four days
After a fairly unremarkable start to the 2021/22 campaign where he has been kept in the shadows behind the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Origi has burst into life for the Reds with two big winning goals.
On Saturday (4 December), the Belgian scored in stoppage time to secure a 1-0 victory at Wolves and boost his side’s title hopes.
After falling behind to a Fikayo Tomoro opener, Mohamed Salah equalised in the 36th-minute before it was left to Origi to score the winner in the second half.
He’s riding the crest of a wae at the moment and looks like ideal competition for Michail Antonio at the London Stadium, but whether he wants to leave Liverpool in January as they target Premier League and Champions League glory, remains to be seen.
