Wolves Set To Move In For This £20m-Rated Liverpool Forward: Shrewd Move For Nuno Santo?

According to a recent report by Birmingham Mail, Wolves are lining up an offer to secure the services of Liverpool outcast Divock Origi. However, it is also understood that they will face stiff competition from Juventus in pursuit of the Belgian talent’s signature. Some sources have recently claimed that the Reds are looking for a fee in the region of £20m if they are to be persuaded to part ways with their prized asset.

Origi’s Recent Nightmare At Merseyside

The 23-year-old centre-forward has only been named once in Jurgen Klopp’s match-day squads so far. However, he was an unused substitute during that game with his only appearance this season coming in a Premier League 2 game for the club’s Under-23 side. He has fallen behind the Anfield pecking order to the likes of Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke which has only compounded his misery in recent times.

His desire to stay and fight for his place in Klopp’s starting XI is admirable, but at the same time, it has been a foolish decision which has derailed his football career. Hence, a potential move to Wolves in the near future could see him secure more game time on the pitch which will help him get his career back on track.

What Can The Belgian Striker Bring To The Molineaux?

Origi is blessed with electrifying pace and can hold up the ball up quite effectively using his sturdy frame. The Liverpool frontman can also dribble with the ball out of tight spaces which makes him dangerous for the opposition defenders in 1v1 situations.

However, despite so much promise, the Belgian cannot boast a prolific goal-scoring record as evidenced by his recent loan spell with VfL Wolfsburg last season where had he scored just seven goals while providing three assists in 36 matches across all competitions.

Will Origi Be A Clever Signing For Nuno Espirito Santo?

Even though Origi has struggled to prove his worth in recent times, Wolves should still take a shot at him as Raul Jiminez has not been able to score goals consistently during this campaign. Hence, the addition of Origi will not only bolster Nuno Santo’s attacking options at the Molineaux Stadium but also add more competition for places up top.
