Liverpool could solve Divock Origi problem with ideal long-term FSG transfer

[ad_1]

It is the end of an era at Anfield. For the first time under Jürgen Klopp’s reign Divock Origi will not be contracted to the club next season.

The Belgian ace, who has delivered iconic and indelible moments under Klopp, will be moving onto pastures new and likely joining AC Milan this summer upon the expiry of his contract.

In the process of doing so, he will leave a gaping abyss behind at Anfield. While Origi has been far from a regular in Liverpool’s success on the pitch, he has often popped up at just the right times and the most opportune moments in order to secure pivotal and memorable results for Liverpool.

Without him, the Reds will need to find a new hero to fill the void. Whether that will be promoting someone from within (the more likely option) or whether it will be Julian Ward dipping his toes into the transfer market again, only time will tell. But Ward does have an ideal target who has been previously reported to be on Liverpool’s radar and who could be available this summer.

For now, 18-year-old Daniel Jebbison is currently on international duty with England U19 at the European Championship where he has already found the back of the net in the tournament and is hoping to win some silverware representing one of the favourites of the competition.

But when he returns back to Sheffield United, he will have a decision to make. With just one year left on his contract and plenty of Premier League interest, Jebbison could be looking onto pastures new, and Liverpool could be an ideal destination for the youngster.

In total, Jebbison scored nine goals in 23 appearances for Burton Albion playing predominantly in League One last season, but he has already scored in the Premier League for Sheffield United and considering his tender age, those are impressive numbers already.

His height and physical ability make him an ideal heir to Origi, with Jebbison standing at 1.95 metres tall. Quick and agile, he is the type of forward who could thrive at Anfield and very much can be compared to the club’s latest signing in Darwin Núñez.

Jebbison will not be guaranteed a regular role, but he will know the departure of Origi and Takumi Minamino has opened up the chance for a back-up striker to take their place. At 18, playing in domestic cup games and honing your skills from some of the best in your position, would not necessarily be detrimental to his development.

Considering Liverpool could get him on the cheap this summer and his tender age, this could be a perfect transfer for FSG and Julian Ward and it would not be a surprise for the Reds to go for Jebbison if they decide to add a back-up forward in this window.
