Origi set to join Spurs
London based Tottenham Hotspurs are set to acquire the services of Liverpool striker Divock Origi to fill the void left by Harry Kane-reports the Telegraph.
Spurs will be without Kane for six matches after getting an injury last Sunday and the Telegraph believes that the Mauricio Pochettino side has planned a meeting to discuss how to deal with Kane’s absence over the next couple of months.
With Heung-Min Son away on international duty and Lucas Moura also absent through injury, manager Mauricio Pochettino’s side looks desperately short of options in attack with Origi identified as a replacement who could help fill the void.
Origi, 23, has just 18 months left on his Liverpool contract and has only made two appearances in the Premier League this season, but in one of those, he did net a dramatic stoppage-time winner against Everton.
The Belgian spent the 2017/18 season on loan with Bundesliga side Wolfsburg but did not impress scoring only six times in 34 games.
Fernando Llorente, who scored a hat-trick in the FA Cup defeat of Tranmere at the beginning of the month, is the only other senior striker at Pochettino’s disposal, but he has not netted in the league for over a year is also believed to be on his way out.
