Nottingham Forest have been linked with a move to sign Divock Origi on transfer deadline day. The news has broken this morning as Forest look to bolster their strike force before tonight’s deadline.
According to Tom White from Sky Sports News, the striker has three Premier League clubs courting his signature; Burnley, Forest and Fulham.
Furthermore, he believes that Origi is flying into England this afternoon. He’s expected to sign for one of three clubs, with Forest and Fulham talks ongoing.
The trio are looking into the possibility of landing the player before tonight’s deadline. The three clubs are chasing a player who has been told by AC Milan that he’s surplus to requirements.
Origi is a man who knows all about English football. He spent several years at Liverpool, winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup with the Reds.
MORE FOREST STORIES
The 28-year-old talisman is a bit of a cult hero at Anfield. He scored some very important goals for the club, bagging 41 goals during 175 appearances for the club.
It’s hard to imagine Origi signing for one of the smaller clubs in the Premier League. However, he may welcome another crack with Forest, Fulham or Burnley.
Forest-supporting pundit Jermaine Jenas praised Origi two years ago. He called him ‘very unique’ after his efforts during a game against Wolves in a Premier League game.
Forest want Origi on transfer deadline day
This would be an intriguing one. At Liverpool, Origi thrived under good service and Forest would have to make sure he got that on Trentside.
The talisman does know how to score goals, however. He was often considered a backup option with Liverpool and under regular football he might star.
Taiwo Awoniyi is likely to remain the number one striker this season. If he were to get injured, however, the club would find themselves in trouble.
This would be a fascinating deal and the Reds would probably welcome his arrival at the City Ground today.
