Origi should consider ending Liverpool career for new challenge at West Ham United

Divock Origi should consider calling an end to his Liverpool spell and moving to West Ham United if the option becomes available.

What’s the word?

The Belgium international, who has earned 25 caps for his country, has been on Liverpool’s books since his 2015 move from Lille.

Under both Brendan Rodgers and current manager Jurgen Klopp, the attacker has struggled to hold down a regular place in the team.

Last season, the 23-year-old was sent on loan to Bundesliga club Wolfsburg, where he scored seven goals and creating three assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

Origi has since returned to Liverpool for pre-season, but it is unclear where his long-term future lies.

Would he fit in at West Ham?

Now that Manuel Pellegrini is in charge, it is difficult to say what system the Chilean will implement at the London Stadium.

However, Origi has the skill to thrive when given regular minutes on the pitch as he has pace on his side, as well as the ability to drop back and run at goal.

The Belgian is comfortable in one-on-ones and with Javier Martinez failing to deliver and Andy Carroll being susceptible to injuries, Origi could provide another dimension, along with Marko Arnautovic.

There is every likelihood that the attacker, who can play up front or wide, will want to prove himself at Liverpool, but he will struggle to disrupt the forward three of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

If Origi wants to play first-team football on a weekly basis, he should consider his options.
