With the January transfer window just around the corner, Wolves require added heads and they need to do their business quickly.
Fortunately, the club seem prepared heading into next month.
Raul Jimenez suffered a fractured skull against Arsenal a few weeks ago and as a result, Wolves are looking for cover in attack.
That’s because according to The Athletic, Nuno Santo’s men have a list of more than two dozen strikers they need to whittle down before the window opens.
The same report reveals who one of those targets is – Divock Origi.
Wolves have a long-standing interest in the Liverpool striker and they could finally make their move in January.
The Reds are open to receiving offers for the Belgian international who is currently valued at £14.4m via Transfermarkt.
That being said, Wolves journalist Tim Spiers claims the net is cast wide and mentions loan deals and loan to buy options before permanent acquisitions.
Origi is used to playing second fiddle at Liverpool and thus, he could relish the opportunity of standing in for Jimenez at Wolves.
After all, the 25-year-old has come up with absolutely massive goals for Jurgen Klopp’s side down the years.
He scored the winner in a Merseyside derby, popped up with a strike against Barcelona in the Champions League at Anfield and then even scored in the final when they beat Tottenham.
This is someone who enjoys the big occasions and would surely flourish when given more game time.
He only has one goal this season but that is hardly a fair reflection considering he’s started just four times.
Described as a “monster” by fellow Belgian Vincent Kompany, he’s also an “outstanding worker in training” according to the former defender.
Certainly, to fit in Wolves system he’d need to hit the ground running but given his work rate, that should be no problem. He is a rangy striker who can hold the ball up but also score goals – he’d be perfect for the Old Gold.
Nuno must be chomping at the bit to bring him to the Midlands.
