Liverpool striker Divock Origi is a potential option for Eintracht Frankfurt, but they would only be able to afford a loan deal for the Belgian.

That’s according to Waldeckische Landeszeitung, who cover the reported interest in the Reds forward today.

The Bundesliga side are on the hunt for a striker after allowing Bas Dost to move to Club Brugge, leaving them with Andre Silva as their only fit striker.

They are firmly on the hunt for a replacement, and Origi has been named as an option, with it believed he is on a list of players Liverpool would be willing to let go given his reduced role in Jürgen Klopp’s squad.

Waldeckische Landeszeitung confirm that Origi is one of the names ‘circulating’ as a possible replacement for Bas Dost, but the Germans are limited in what they can do.

A ‘permanent contract is not an option’ for Eintracht due to Origi’s ‘immense transfer fee’ alone – he’s valued at €16m – while his ‘princely salary’ is also a problem.

However, a loan until the end of the season ‘would be possible’, although it’s not mentioned whether Frankfurt have opened talks or anything of that nature.

The newspaper argues a move would make sense though as Origi wouldn’t need any time to get used to the Bundesliga having spent time on loan at Wolfsburg on loan from Liverpool in 2017.

Either way, Frankfurt have until the end of January to get their man, but it’s believed the club ‘will probably announce’ Bas Dost’s successor ‘in the next few days.’
