Fulham ready to bid £15 million for Liverpool striker

Fulham are ready to bid £15 million for Liverpool striker Divock Origi.

That is according to The Sun who reports that the Cottagers are prepared to sign the 23-year old Belgian as they look to strengthen their squad as they battle to stay in the Premier League.

Origi who signed as a teenager with Liverpool from French side Lille is very much a bit-part player at Anfield, and has been told that he is free to leave the club in the current window if the right offer comes in for him, with his first-team chances with the Reds very limited.

That is despite him scoring a bizarre last-minute winner in the Merseyside derby last month when he capitalised on an error from Everton keeper Jordan Pickford.

Fulham spent over £100 million on new players in the summer under former boss Slaviša Jokanović but owner Shahid Khan is prepared to bankroll new manager Claudio Ranieri again in order to preserve their top-flight status.

Andy is an exiled English football fan living in Cyprus. He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
