West Ham could look to get rid of Lucas Perez this month and bring in a replacement.
According to the print edition of The Daily Star – via HITC Sport – West Ham will consider Divock Origi should Perez leave.
Liverpool striker Origi has struggled for game time at Anfield and could be on the move this window.
West Ham are the latest club to be linked with the Belgium international, who scored in his most recent outing.
Lucas Perez out?
West Ham are ready to axe Perez just half a season after he joined from Arsenal.
The 30-year-old has scored four times in 13 games, including two in one game against Cardiff City.
But he has struggled to nail down a regular starting spot at West Ham and could be moved on by Manuel Pellegrini.
Real Betis are considering a move for the Spaniard, according to The Daily Mail.
But while the La Liga side fancy a loan move, West Ham are hoping to permanently offload Perez.
Who is Divock Origi?
Origi joined Liverpool from Lille back in 2014 but has struggled to replace the Reds’ forwards.
The 23-year-old has only played four games this season but has scored twice. He netted a dramatic late winner in the Merseyside derby against Everton then scored in the FA Cup defeat to Wolves.
Origi’s total tally as a Liverpool player in 23 goals in 82 games in all competitions, while he also scored six in 34 for Wolfsburg.
The Belgian striker would be competing with Marko Arnautovic, Andy Carroll and Javier Hernandez at West Ham.
