Leeds United are a treat to watch when on song but, at the same time, have been wasteful in front of goal. They would have gathered a lot more points if their chances were converted and according to former England striker Kevin Phillips (while speaking to Football Insider), Leeds must aim a move for Divock Origi if the Belgian is made available during the winter window.
Although the Liverpool cult hero will be remembered for his famous goals, the lack of minutes in recent months suggests he is now surplus to requirement in Merseyside. Diogo Jota’s arrival has dropped him further down the pecking order and the Whites, highly reliant on Patrick Bamford high up the pitch, should strengthen themselves furthermore to cement their place in the top-flight football.
“A fresh challenge for him would be best and I am sure there will be a queue of clubs looking to sign him if he is made available. We have seen what he can do. He just needs to play football. I would not be surprised if he moves on in January and Leeds is definitely a potential destination.”
Phillips said, which has fueled the speculations over the 25-year-old’s Anfield future.
Why Origi Has Missed The Boat At Liverpool
Despite creating many magic moments, Origi has never been able to settle down in England. Jurgen Klopp prefers players who are flexible and that’s where the trouble began when the gaffer deployed him down the left flank. He failed to leave an impression during the 2019-20 season and opted to try his luck once more by staying put ignoring a summer move. The centre-forward has been a disappointment in limited opportunities and therefore, should accept a January exit in order to attain first-team minutes ahead of the Euro 2020 next summer.
Why Leeds Should Seal The Origi Deal Ahead Of The Other Suitors
Marcelo Bielsa roped in Rodrigo in summer but has mostly utilized the Spaniard from an attacking midfield role. This leaves him with Bamford as the only outright ‘number 9’ option and the signing of the Belgium international would inject more directness and precision in their free-flowing football. Origi is sharp enough to convert his chances from in and around the box and a move to Leeds, thus, would benefit all parties involved.
