Wolverhampton Wanderers will reportedly launch a move to sign Divock Origi when the transfer window re-opens in January.
The Liverpool striker looks increasingly likely to leave the club in 2019 after seeing his game time severely limited on Merseyside.
Origi has made just one senior appearance for the Reds so far this season, coming on as a second half substitute in the recent Champions League defeat away to Red Star Belgrade.
He is now being eyed as a priority £20million January target by newly-promoted Wolves, according to the Mirror’s Darren Wells.
Turkish outfit Galatasaray were also recently touted as potential suitors amid their efforts to find a long-term replacement for Bafétimbi Gomis.
Origi spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg, supplying seven goals and three assists as well as helping the Bundesliga side escape relegation.
He subsequently failed to impress upon his return to Melwood in the summer, offering little threat to Daniel Sturridge’s role as backup.
The 23-year-old later rejected the chance to join Wolves and also saw a proposed move to Borussia Dortmund fall through in light of Liverpool’s hefty £27million asking price.
In truth, the Belgian hasn’t quite been the same since suffering an ankle injury under a tackle from Ramiro Funes Mori during April 2016’s Merseyside derby.
A permanent move elsewhere is perhaps the fresh direction he needs to turn his once-glowing potential into a blossoming career.
