Tottenham Hotspur were inactive earlier in the transfer window, which didn’t please the fans by any stretch of the imagination. SO much so, that even Chelsea manager Antonio Conte openly questioned the lack of ambition by the Spurs. Mauricio Pochettino has since made some decent signings but still, his side don’t have the freshness n their playing XI unlike other teams.
Spurs are having a tough time away from their original home White Hart Lane. Their makeshift home stadium Wembley has not served them well as they sit in the ninth position with four points from three matches. The final few days of the transfer window can be fruitful if Pochettino adds more firepower to their attack.
Reports have linked Liverpool’s youngster Divock Origi with a move away from Anfield. Origi’s father has admitted that a move to Tottenham could be a possibility though there are clubs interested from France and Germany.
Divock Origi used to play for French side Lille before Liverpool came calling after the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Liverpool signed this Belgian for a fee of around 10 million pounds. He spent the 2014/15 season in Lille on a loan before he came back before the 2015/16 season.
Since then, he has donned the Red shirt 51 times over the course of two seasons. Origi has scored 12 times in these matches and provided four assists to his teammates. His shooting accuracy is a decent 44% and has had 27 shots on target in the Premier League so far. The youngster has also played 22 times for his national side but has scored only three goals so far.
What does he bring to the table?
Divock Origi’s statistics fail to inspire. He has been a largely a squad player so far however, and it should be noted that he was never the first choice forward for any team. Jürgen Klopp doesn’t trust him and naturally so as they have a settled front three.
More often than not, Origi has played out of position. He played out wide during most of the games and never really had a chance to leave a telling impact. Klopp used him as a late substitute for most of the time and hence Origi did not spend enough time on the pitch.
Liverpool have formed a deadly attacking trident of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. If Coutinho stays too, then there is absolutely no chance that the 22-year old will have enough game time. The FIFA World Cup will start from next year and it would be best if Origi decides to move away from Liverpool.
Tottenham have a proven goal-scorer in Harry Kane and might not need someone to replace him. However, Mauricio Pochettino is one of the best managers in the country currently. He knows exactly how to nurture young talents and develop them into excellent players. Divock Origi can see this as a new beginning of his career and definitely move to the Spurs. After all, this deal will be beneficial to all the parties involved.
