BREAKING NEWS: Liverpool's Origi set for Tottenham switch

Divock Origi could leave Liverpool for Tottenham in search of regular playing time according to the striker's father Mike Origi.

The Belgium international who was a key member of Jurgen Klopp's attacking options last season has fallen behind Dominic Solanke and Daniel Sturridge in the pecking order at Liverpool.

Mike Origi in an interview confirmed interests from Germany and France but revealed Tottenham as a possibility.

"We’ve not been contacted by Anderlecht. Divock has to leave Liverpool to get more playing time.

“Tottenham is a possibility, but there is also interest from France and Germany." Origi told as quoted in Sky Sports

The 22-year-old joined Liverpool in 2014 after impressing at the 2014 World Cup, but has failed to start a game for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season. Tottenham are in need of more firepower, especially in wide positions.

Harry Kane has won the Golden Boot for the past two seasons but Vincent Janssen, who was brought in at the beginning of last season as back-up to the England international, has failed to deliver.
