West Ham fans have taken to Twitter to beg David Moyes to sign Divock Origi from Liverpool in the January transfer window.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is allegedly prepared to allow the 26-year-old hitman to leave Anfield for less than £10 million this month according to Dharmesh Sheth (Sky Sports News The Transfer Show on Thursday evening).
Hammers boss David Moyes desperately needs to bring a top-class striker to the London Stadium this month.
Michail Antonio has been excellent for West Ham over the past 18 months or so but he desperately needs more competition and cover.
The Hammers have been linked with so many strikers since Sebastien Haller left the London Stadium for Ajax this time last year – probably at least 40.
Those links resurfaced again yesterday when Sky Sports claimed that Reds boss Klopp is willing to let him leave Anfield for just under £10 million. Its must be said though, that is incredibly hard to believe considering the fact that Liverpool will be without Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane for the next four or five weeks due to their participation in the Africa Cup of Nations.
If Sky Sports’ claim is true, however, what an incredible bargain that would be for the Hammers!
West Ham fans beg Moyes to sign Origi
The Belgian would be the absolutely ideal signing for us this month.
He can play anywhere along the front-line, is willing to put in a real shift and has proven that he can produce the goods at the very highest level.
Origi scored a goal in the Champions League final back in 2019 so he certainly knows how to perform on the biggest stage.
The Liverpool hitman possesses a real burst of acceleration and perhaps if given regular game-time at West Ham, everyone would start to see the best of the Belgian.
Origi has five goals and two assists to his name in 10 games for the Reds this season (Transfermarkt).
The 26-year-old forward is a very decent finisher. He seems to be tailor made for West Ham and would provide genuine competition for Antonio.
Some West Ham fans think signing Origi this month would be an absolute no-brainer…
