Liverpool Striker Linked With A Move Away: Which Of These 3 Bundesliga Teams Will Be His Best Fit

Divock Origi has surprisingly emerged as the latest candidate to leave Liverpool this summer. The Belgian has already gone down the pecking order this season and in the light of the Thomas Lemar transfer news, it’s highly likely that the youngster will have to part ways with the Merseyside club. A total of 11 clubs are reportedly interested in the services of Origi, three of which are Bundesliga clubs.

As we all know, Jurgen Klopp has a rich knowledge about the Bundesliga, he might want to have his players sent to the German Bundesliga to gain more experience, aside from its known quality of nurturing young talents. Although we’re not quite sure, whether Origi will leave the club permanently or not, let’s look at the three clubs interested in the Belgian youngster and see who will be the perfect club for Origi.

Bayer Leverkusen

Leverkusen are trying to reinstate their status among the German elites under new coach Heiko Herrlich, following a terrible season under the previous boss Roger Schmidt and his interim successor Tayfun Korkut. Although odds don’t seem to favour the werkself as Heiko Herrlich is highly tipped to get sacked by the board soon enough.

The club has done badly in the transfer market this summer, having lost key players such as Javier Hernandez, Hakan Calhanoglu and Omer Toprak, while they are also on the verge of losing Kevin Kampl, Leverkusen have been decimated in terms of their squad credibility this summer. Their main problems lie in their offensive zones, where they don’t have a recognized striker apart from Stefan Kiessling and Joel Pohjanpalo. Kiessling is already 33 and is playing his final season, while Pohjanpalo has been ruled out for few weeks due to an injury, therefore, the door is open for Origi to claim the striker’s spot available at the moment.

Leverkusen, themselves are in desperate need of someone who can lead their line – and Divock Origi might just make the perfect sense of doing so. He has the experience of playing in the Premier League and won’t find it difficult to get gametime as Leverkusen look to get back among the German elites this season.

Werder Bremen

Bremen are definitely the most prestigious clubs among the three clubs interested in signing Origi. The main advantage is that they can offer European football for the Belgian International this season, following a successful Bundesliga campaign last season.

However, at Bremen, Origi will have to fight for his place in the starting lineup as Max Kruse is their current striker up front. The German International was pivotal to their success last season and it seems highly unlikely that Origi will dethrone his position at the club.

VfL Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg, on the other hand, is the most ambitious of the three clubs. The Wolves have spent a lot of money in order to get back among the Bundesliga top dogs. They are also the most likelier of the clubs to sign Origi.

However, the competition will be intense at Wolfsburg as they have already signed a host of attacking talents this summer including Kaylen Hinds and a fellow Belgian talent, Landry Dimata. While he also has to compete with first choice striker Mario Gomez and Paul Georges Ntep for a place in the first team.

Indeed! Wolfsburg seems like a pretty bad choice for Divock Origi – not to say that their recent signings have all failed so far, and Origi is likely to follow suit.

Among those three Bundesliga outfits, Leverkusen seems like the perfect club for Divock Origi. The club has seen success in the past and is also very good at nurturing young talents. But most importantly, they can assure playing time for young Origi.
