In a recent report, The Athletic had claimed that Liverpool are now open to selling Divock Origi and since then several English clubs have been linked with the forward.
Clubs like Crystal Palace and Wolves have been keeping tabs on the whole situation and some rumours had even claimed that the Molineux outfit were the likeliest to get a hold of him.
But now according to transfer expert Alex Crook, West Ham United might be trying to make a late dash to seal the signing of Divock Origi.
Crook said, told on talkSPORT, as quoted: “I wouldn’t rule that out between now and the end of the month.
“He’s out of contract at the end of the season and Liverpool might even extend and loan him out to try and sell him next summer.
“West Ham need a striker and there’s a connection between West Ham and an agent Origi has recently signed up with. He might be one of the players that moves on between now and the deadline.”
A few days ago Wolves were being heavily linked with Divock Origi but over time all those rumours have fizzled out. And this is why we think Wolves might no longer be interested in the Liverpool misfit.

This means if West Ham United were to make a late bid they could very easily get their hands on the Liverpool misfit.
After Diogo Jota’s fine start to the campaign, it’s clear that Origi has no future at Anfield so Jurgen Klopp will have no hesitation to let him move out in the next few days.
Michail Antonio is the only available senior centre-forward option for West Ham which is why Moyes needs to bring in a new striker by any means necessary. And if they can sign Origi then it will certainly be a job well done.
The latest reports are suggesting that Liverpool will accept bids for around £12 million and this amount is something which West Ham United should be able to pay really easily.
