Reported Wolves target Origi takes chance to impress in EFL Cup

Wolves were once again linked with Liverpool striker Divock Origi during the summer.

After the Belgian didn’t leave Anfield, some observers might have wondered how much gametime he’d get.

He was handed a start against Milan in the Champions League last week and got another in the EFL Cup against Norwich last night.

Origi took the chance to impress as Liverpool ran out 3-0 winners at Carrow Road.

It took him just four minutes to provide an assist, laying on Takumi Minamino’s opening goal.

Within five minutes of half-time, he’d made it 2-0, with a goal Jurgen Klopp described after the game as ‘top class’.

Origi would only have been a backup option at Wolves too, and Bruno Lage landed Hwang Hee-Chan instead.

It couldn’t be said that’s a bad move, as the early signs are that the South Korean international will be a good loan addition.

But with Origi scoring and setting up goals while Wolves struggle for cutting edge, last night’s display offers an idea of what Lage could have had at his disposal had things panned out differently and if the transfer reports from the summer were actually accurate.
