Leeds United make contact with Liverpool about Divock Origi

Leeds United have made contact with Liverpool to enquire about their forward Divock Origi, as per The Boot Room

The Whites are thinking about signing the Belgian footballer if they don’t succeed in hiring Celtic star Odsonne Edouard. 

The report claims that the 25-year-old wants to leave the club this summer as he wants more regular football action, and ideally would prefer a Premier League side. 

The Belgium international joined the Reds in 2014 for £10million and he has proved himself worthy of the price-tag, even though he hasn’t been a regular for Jurgen Klopp’s team. 

His most memorable moment came against Barcelona in the Champions League semi-final when he scored two superb goals to help his side proceed to the final, which they ultimately won. 

Despite being hugely talented and popular, he is behind Roberto Firmino in the pecking order and therefore he isn’t getting a lot of opportunities at Anfield. 

Since joining Liverpool in 2014, he has clocked up 140 appearances in all competitions so far, with 34 goals and 12 assists to his name. 

He made 28 Premier League appearances last season but reports suggest that the Belgian is desperate to get more regular football action. 

The Whites need a good striker to compete with Patrick Bamford at Elland Road in the next campaign, and Origi looks to be a good fit for them. At just 25, he can boast experience of playing at the top level and has enormous potential. 

If the transfer move becomes successful, he can further polish his skills by working under a great manager like Marcelo Bielsa.
