Club Brugge have been linked with a handful of strikers ever since their CEO, Vincent Mannaert, admitted his side will look to bring in a new No.9 in the winter market.
Liverpool’s Divock Origi has been included in the Belgian side’s January transfer target list.
Bas Dost was another striker wanted by the Belgian side and on Thursday, Eintracht Frankfurt said the Dutchman will be moving to the Jupiler Pro League side next month.
With Dost’s deal now confirmed, Voetbal 24 takes a look at what this signing means for Origi’s chances of arriving at Club Brugge.
It’s once again explained the Reds player was in the ‘picture at Club Brugge in recent times’, and their supporters have ‘already dreamed’ of the arrival of both Dost and Origi.
However, the possibility of the Belgium international joining Club Brugge ‘disappears’ following the Dost deal.
It’s claimed Origi didn’t fit Club Brugge’s need and the English champions ‘ask a lot of money’ for a permanent transfer or a loan deal.
Origi has seen his playing time drastically reduce this season as Jürgen Klopp has relied on other players in the attacking positions. He will have to look for a move away from Liverpool in January, if he needs to feature regularly in the second half of the campaign.
