The Premier League trio and the Spanish League side are chasing the Liverpool man
Posted On March 18, 2021
Liverpool striker Divock Origi has been linked with a move to several different aspects by Spanish El Gol Digital outlet.
Origi came to Liverpool during the 2014 summer transfer window from Lille, after an impressive showing as a substitute for Belgium at the World Cup. Since then, he has made 157 appearances for the Reds in all competitions, scoring 35 goals – most of them on the bench.
The pinnacle of his career came during the 2018/19 season, when he made himself an unlikely hero at Anfield. He scored several important goals throughout the season, including the last instant victory in the Merseyside derby against Everton, a double in the Champions League comeback against Barcelona, and the second in the 2–0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final.
However, his time at the Reds appears to be coming to an end. He has failed to score in any of his last 16 matches in all competitions, and his final goal was a 7–2 Carabao Cup victory over Lincoln City in September. Recent reports stated that the Belgian will be allowed to leave at the end of the season.
According to El Gol Digital, Real Sociedad will compete with Newcastle United, Wolverhampton Wanderers, and Aston Villa for Origi’s services in the summer.
Real Sociedad may search for a new striker before next season in the event of the transfer of Swedish youngster Alexander Isaac. The 21-year-old is the sixth goalscorer in La Liga this season with 12 goals, and has been linked with a move to Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund.
Wolverhampton and Newcastle have both struggled in front of goal this season, with each scoring 28 goals – only Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion, Burnley and Fulham have scored fewer goals. Both teams will be looking for better support options for their main strikers – Raul Jimenez and Callum Wilson – who have spent long periods on the sidelines of the term.
Meanwhile, Aston Villa will likely want a new option up front in the event that Oli Watkins is not available. The former Brentford player had success at Villa Park, but forwards Wesley, Mbwana Samata and Kenan Davis had not made such fortunes.
