West Ham are keen to sign Liverpool striker Divock Origi according to club insider ExWHUemployee.

Hammers boss David Moyes allegedly isn’t convinced by the 26-year-old Reds attacker, however.

The Scot desperately needs to bring in a centre-forward before the transfer window slams shut to cover for and compete with Michail Antonio.

One name who has been linked with a move to West Ham for quite some time is Liverpool forward Divock Origi.

It seems as though the 29-capped Belgium international is dividing opinion at the London Stadium, however.

West Ham and Moyes at odds over Origi

ExWHUemployee claims that West Ham are considering a loan move to sign the 26-year-old Liverpool man.

Hammers boss David Moyes isn’t convinced by the Belgian, however. It will come as no surprise at all that the former Lille ace is a client of David Sullivan’s favourite agent Will Salthouse.

Origi wouldn’t be a bad addition for the Hammers. He certainly shouldn’t be Moyes’s number one target, however. And he clearly isn’t.

He has scored 35 goals in 157 games for the Reds (Transfermarkt) – hardly prolific numbers!

Liverpool ace better than nobody at all?

Origi has a lot of potential but he has never really lived up to the hype at Anfield.

Who knows though, perhaps he will come out of his shell and produce the goods if given a regular run of games at West Ham.

One thing’s for sure, bringing in Origi would be better than signing nobody at all. Michail Antonio quite simply cannot go through an entire season playing every minute without damaging his hamstrings.

Whether David Moyes sees it that way, however, is another matter all together.
