Liverpool 23-year-old star valued at £15m could make move to direct PL rivals

January 14, 2019

Fulham owner Shahid Khan will fund a £15 million move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi, with the Cottagers are in the process of bolstering their squad for the remaining months of the season as they desperately attempt to climb out of the Premier League relegation zone.

Divock Origi is one of the players to have emerged as a possible target for the South London team, and The Sun claims that Claudio Ranieri will receive the funds to make a permanent move possible.

The London rivals are said to be hopeful of getting a deal over the line in the next week, with the Reds prepared to sell the Belgium international if his valuation is met.

Former Lille and Wolfsburg loanee Divock Origi has managed one goal in two top-flight outings for the Merseyside giants this season, having slipped well down the pecking order for a place in the side.

AC Milan are also understood to be keeping a close eye on the 23-year-old with the bosses of Italian giants not satisfied with the performances of Gonzalo Higuain, who is assumed to be willing leave San Siro with Maurizio Sarri desperate to reunite with the Argentina international.
