Premier League rivals keen on January deal to sign out-of-favour Liverpool star

West Ham United are interested in a January deal to land Liverpool star Divock Origi, but only if Spanish forward Lucas Perez leaves the club, the reports say.

According to a daily tabloid newspaper The Daily Star, as quoted on HITC, the Hammers could plot a January move to sign the Belgian, with Lucas attracting interest from elsewhere.

After failing to break into Chilean coach Manuel Pellegrini’s plans since his arrival over the summer transfer market, Perez is being heavily connected with a move back to Spain.

Real Betis are interested in snapping the striker, but West Ham United are eager to ensure that they are not left short of variants in the final third.

The Spaniard has been not able to recreate the form he showed in Spain’s top division over in the Premier League, both with Arsenal and now West Ham United.

Like Lucas Perez, Origi is also out of favour at Anfield outfit and has found game time to come by this campaign.

In spite of securing hero status at Reds with his late goal against Everton in the Merseyside derby, a transfer away from the club is looking extremely likely.
