According to the Mirror, Wolves are lining up a £20 million bid for out-of-favour Liverpool striker Divock Origi. Meanwhile, ESPN report that Galatasaray want the 25-cap Belgium international to join them on loan in January.
If both stories are true, and both clubs come in with their respective offers during the winter transfer window, then the Reds have a decision to make between offloading the 23-year-old on a permanent or temporary basis.

Allowing the striker only to leave on loan would suggest that Jurgen Klopp retains some faith in Origi. However, given that the forward is yet to appear for Liverpool this season, it is clear that he is currently deemed surplus to requirements.
Having spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg – where he struggled, netting just six times in 31 appearances – Origi has done little recently to suggest that he has what it takes to make the grade at Anfield.
Therefore, if Wolves, or anyone, tables a big cash offer for Origi in January, Liverpool would be wise to take the money in exchange for the forward.
What do you think, Reds fans – does Origi still have a future at Liverpool under Klopp?
