Wolves fans would welcome Liverpool striker Divock Origi to Molineux, believes Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.
Origi is thought to be a target for Wolves before the transfer window closes, with The Telegraph recently reporting that the Midlands club are one Premier League side currently eyeing up the 26-year-old.
He barely played last season, starting just two league games for Liverpool. It is a theme you would expect to continue, with Jurgen Klopp having Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino all to call upon.
Considering that, it probably would not shock anyone if Origi did end up leaving Anfield before the end of the month. And if Molineux is his destination, Hatfield is expecting a warm welcome.
“I think Wolves fans would take him,” the Wolves reporter said to FFC. “It’s never really seemed to kind of completely click for him at Liverpool in terms of the amount of game time that he probably wants. In the same respect, he’s been an important player for the Reds and scored some massive goals for them.
“I think he’s one Wolves fans would love to see.”
If Origi wants more minutes, then a move to Wolves does make some sense. If Bruno Lage sticks with a one-striker system, he is going to have to battle to get into the side ahead of Raul Jimenez.
Still, there should be more opportunities there than at Anfield, where he is currently competing against the likes of Mane and Jota.
