£60,000-a-week Liverpool star attracts interest from Liverpool

Divock Origi could leave Liverpool in the January transfer market, with French side Lens expressing serious interest in the Belgian star, according to Fichajes.

The striker did start against AC Milan during the Reds’ midweek Champions League victory and grabbed an assist.

Since then interest has mounted as Divcok proved his sharpness and match fitness. Jurgen Klopp’s side might look to cash in early 2022, or the forward might leave as a free agent next year.

There was significant interest from the English sides during the summer. West Ham United, Crystal Palace were among the clubs interested in signing him but baulked at the Reds’ asking price for the striker.

These outfits could come back in the January market, while the interest from the Ligue 1 club Lens seems genuine.

Their manager Franck Haise likes Divock very much and allegedly urged his club to make a swoop as soon as January.

The rumoured price tag quoted is about €12m, which is significantly lower than the Merseyside giants’ asking price in the summer.

It remains to be seen if they are serious about their pursuit of Divock and would meet the aforementioned valuation.

Liverpool chief wants to bring Chelsea academy product to Anfield

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is allegedly keen on Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi ahead of the January transfer market.

He didn’t feature as Thomas Tuchel’s men beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 to go top of the Premier League last weekend, with the winger having struggled for minutes thus far this season.

Callum faces competition from Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic for a place in the Blues’ attack alongside Romelu Lukaku, while Reece James and Cesar Azpilicueta are the German manager’s favoured options at right wing-back.

In spite of Tuchel having ruled out a summer transfer, speculation has continued over Callum’s future, with Jurgen said to be keen on a swoop.

That’s according to Calcio Mercato, which reports the club are carefully considering whether to raid their domestic rivals for his signature.

The Reds were also linked with interest in the Englishman in the summer, having reportedly held discussions with his entourage two-and-a-half years ago after Bayern Munich had an offer rejected.

It seems unlikely the Stamford Bridge side would sanction a move for the player to one of their title rivals, with the Merseyside giants and the west Londoners currently neck and neck at the top of the standings.

Liverpool in battle for £20m Premier League rivals man

Premier League pair Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are allegedly keeping a close eye on West Ham United attacker Jarrod Bowen.

The 24-year-old Englishman has become an important player for the Irons under David Moyes since his £20 million move from the Championship club Hull City in the winter transfer market of 2020.

According to a recent report from a British online newspaper the Independent, scouts from the Reds, Spurs and also Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City have been watching Jarrod for some time, and all three sides are now considering an approach for the player.

Bowen’s existing contract doesn’t expire until the summer of 2025 and the Hammers are under no pressure to sell one of their key players.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is believed to be planning to recruit a new attacker to strengthen his squad, following the departure of the Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri this summer’s transfer market.

Spurs are also keen to land a player in attack who can provide competition for the likes of Steven Bergwijn, Son Heung-min and Lucas Moura.

Jarrod played in all 38 Premier League matches for the London Stadium outfit last season, netting eight goals and providing five assists.
