Opinion: Liverpool may move for Sarr if Origi reports are true

Liverpool rarely buy without selling. Over the past few years we have seen the Reds bring in millions from player sales in order to reinvest in the squad. Philippe Coutinho was sold, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson Becker were brought in. It has worked for us thus far. Liverpool could well move for Ismaila Sarr if reports that Divock Origi could leave are true.

Origi rumours

According to The Mirror, Brighton, Newcastle United and Fulham are interested in Divock Origi.

The report also quotes a Turkish journalist who has claimed that Fenerbahce have made the first move to sign the Belgian striker.

The Reds are claimed to be open to loaning the 25-year-old out with an obligation to buy for £14m.

Sell to buy

If Divock Origi is heading for the exit door then the Reds will need to bring someone in.

At the minute there are already cries for another forward, particularly in the wide areas.

As it stands Divock Origi is the only senior player who can fill in on the left wing and he is naturally a more central player.

If Origi were to leave then the club are certain to be looking at bringing in another forward.

Liverpool to pursue Sarr?

There have been numerous reports linking Liverpool with a move for Ismaila Sarr.

The Evening Standard claimed that the Reds would have to fork out £40m for the winger.

If the Reds were to move on Divock Origi then a move for Sarr would make sense.

He fits the FSG profile, at just 22-years-old he had an incredibly impressive debut campaign in English football whilst playing for a struggling Watford side last season.

The youngster would also benefit from being around countryman Sadio Mane.

Liverpool signing Sarr would also add a more lethal layer of depth to the Reds’ attack, at the moment bringing on Divock Origi or Harry Wilson won’t strike fear into the hearts of any defences.
