RB Leipzig want Divock Origi

RB Leipzig are looking to sign Liverpool striker Divock Origi on loan for the rest of the season, Sport Bild claims.

The 25-year-old has had some memorable performances for the Reds over the years, but he has been largely out-of-favour this season.

He has yet to start a Premier League game and it is reported that Leipzig have identified him as a potential loan target.

Julian Nagelsmann wants to add more firepower up front and the Belgian is one of the players being considered.

Apart from Origi, Leicester City's Kelechi Iheanacho and Nice's Kasper Dolberg are also on the radar of the club.

The Reds have suffered numerous injury setbacks this term and they are currently without Diogo Jota in the attack with a knee issue.

Still, Origi has hardly played in the league with Roberto Firmino being the undisputed starter up front under Jurgen Klopp.

Origi has more than three years remaining on his Reds contract which was signed shortly after the 2019 Champions League final triumph.
