Jurgen Klopp lauds Divock Origi, who Wolves wanted in the summer

Jurgen Klopp has delivered a glowing report of previous Wolves transfer target Divock Origi.

The striker broke hearts at Molineux on Saturday, as he struck deep into injury time to snatch all three points for Liverpool.

The Belgian converted a cross from Mo Salah cross to leave the home crowd, and the Wolves players, stunned.

It was a monumental effort from Wolves, but positives can be taken from the performance.

The defence and goalkeeper Jose Sa were all superb, and it raises hope ahead of the game against Manchester City at the weekend.

Origi has unsurprisingly been the talk of the town since his goal.

And today, Klopp has hailed his super-sub.

He said (via Liverpool Echo): “It’s just part of his skillset, that’s it. He is a very positive person, that’s for sure, and he is incredibly talented, that’s just how it is.

“He can shoot with right and left; his technical level is incredible. He’s really, really, really quick, how he is in the air, we all know, a monster as well.

“He is a really interesting package. But, that doesn’t mean that you are a constant starter for Liverpool FC because of the quality we have. That’s how it is. That’s how life is.”

Wolves were actually linked with a move for Origi during the last transfer window.

In the end, nothing materialised, and Wolves went into 2021/22 with just two centre-forwards in Raul Jimenez and Fabio Silva.

Should Wolves consider Divock Origi swoop, following Jurgen Klopp praise?

Divock Origi is out of contract at Liverpool next summer.

The Reds, therefore, may be forced to cash in next month to avoid the possibility of seeing him walk for free.

After seeing first-hand what he is capable of, maybe Wolves need to reignite their previous interest.

At the moment, Wolves could absolutely do with someone who can come off the bench to make a difference.

Lage clearly doesn’t fully trust young Silva yet.

Origi has lots of Premier League experience, even though he hasn’t really ever been a regular at Anfield.

Wolves could do worse than to make some enquiries in January.
