The striker will be plying his trade in the Bundesliga for the rest of the season
Liverpool striker Divock Origi has joined Wolfsburg on a season-long loan today.
The forward has been linked with a move away from Anfield on a temporary basis over the last few weeks, with many believing he could be on his way to Monaco as part of a deal for Thomas Lemar.
However, that deal hasn’t materialised, giving another club the chance to take the 22-year old on loan instead.
That’s exactly what Wolfsburg have done, with the German side wrapping up a season-long loan deal for the player today.
Origi would have found gametime hard to come by at Liverpool this season, with the Reds preferring to play Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge over him in the attacking positions.
He is still well-regarded at Anfield though, with the club unwilling to let him leave permanently and boss Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that letting him go out and get first-team action elsewhere can lead to him coming back next summer as an even better player.
As part of the deal, Wolfsburg will not only pay all of his wages but they’ll also be giving Liverpool a £6m loan fee – a small amount that could come in useful as part of any potential last minute deals for the Reds today before the deadline.
