Divock Origi "ideal replacement" for outgoing striker

Liverpool's Divock Origi has been linked with a move to Scottish giants Celtic.

In what seems like the end of Divock Origi's Anfield career, the Belgian striker has been linked with a host of clubs. The list of those interested in Origi's signature include Borussia Dortmund, Real Sociedad, Inter Milan and now a Scottish Giant. 

Former Tottenham player and England national Paul Robinson has claimed that Divock Origi would be the "ideal replacement" for the rumoured to be departing Odsonne Edouard. As a result, the Glasgow based club are in the market for a new striker. 

When speaking to Football Insider, Paul Robinson said "Origi is a top talent and a top athlete. He has been known as a super sub and he has scored some incredible late goals."

However, the former Leeds and Blackburn Rovers man said that it is time to play on a regular basis. 

"[Origi] needs to go and play regularly now, that is the only way he will develop further."

“He is capable of scoring goals, we have seen that. Can he do it consistently for a season though? An amazing player on his day but it remains to be seen as to whether he can do it game after game."

Robinson admits that this may be a risk, but that it could pay off for Celtic. 

“It would be a risk for Celtic to sign him because he has never done it for a run of five, six, seven, eight games.”
