Liverpool fans want business done in January. The Reds could do with some reinforcements and some backup stars could do with moving on. One man has been persistently linked with a move away. According to reports in Germany, Schalke could loan Divock Origi until the end of the season.
Origi needs a move
I don’t remember wanting a player do well more than I want Divock Origi to do well.
The Belgian international has given Kopites some of their most joyous moments in the club’s modern history.
He netted that brace against Barcelona, the clincher in the Champions League final.
He has scored numerous goals in the Merseyside Derby, he nodded home a vital one against Newcastle United.

Yet between these clutch moments he has been anonymous, wasting nearly every chance presented to him.
If he wants to make the Belgium squad for Euro 2021 then he needs a move in January.
Schalke could loan Divock Origi
There has been much talk of Liverpool pursuing 20-year-old centre back Ozan Kabak.
The Bundesliga youngster has been a mainstay in the Schalke defence and the Reds have been linked with a move for him for the past year.
According to Der Westen, Schalke could loan Divock Origi as part of any deal.
There have been talks of a swap deal previously but Der Westen believe it would be tough to convince the striker to make the move permanent.
As a result it’s been suggested that he could join the German side until the end of the season.
What RTK has to say
Schalke loaning Divock Origi makes sense for all involved.
The Belgium isn’t getting much game time at Anfield and he’s wasting the minutes he’s given.
Whether he’ll be able to turn that around we don’t know but he’s not given us much cause for hope recently.
Hopefully he gets a move somewhere soon so that he can really kick on as a starting striker.
