West Ham are allegedly eyeing a bargain swoop for Liverpool ace Divock Origi in January according to Claret and Hugh.
The Liverpool attacker allegedly has no future at Anfield (The Mirror).
Hammers boss David Moyes failed to sign a striker in the summer.
The Scot must bring more competition and cover for Michail Antonio to the London Stadium in January or next summer, however.
It’s an absolute necessity.
And it seems as though the West Ham manager has his eye on someone already ahead of the January transfer window.
West Ham eyeing up swoop for Liverpool ace Origi
The 26-year-old Reds striker is on the Hammers’ radar according to a report form high-level insiders Claret and Hugh.
C&H reckon that Jurgen Klopp wants around £10 million for the 25-capped Belgium International.
West Ham allegedly want a cheaper deal though.
Origi wouldn’t be a bad addition for the Hammers. He certainly shouldn’t be Moyes’s number one target, however.
He has scored 35 goals in 157 games for the Reds (Transfermarkt) – hardly prolific numbers!
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 at his best:
Bearing that in mind, this is one we should keep a very close eye on as the January transfer window approaches.
