Everton are reportedly interested in signing Divock Origi from Liverpool in the January transfer window.

Divock Origi of Liverpool looks on during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield on October 7, 2018 in Liverpool, England.

Everton are interested in signing Liverpool striker Divock Origi in the January transfer window, according to Aksam.

It has been reported by the Turkish publication that Everton have started initiative to sign the Belgium international striker.

The report has also claimed that if Liverpool respond positively to the Toffees’ advances, then Marco Silva’s side will consider letting Cenk Tosun or Oumar Niasse leave in January, with Besiktas reported to be interested in the former.

Desperate move?

Origi is still quite young at the age of 23, but the Liverpool striker has struggled to make a huge impact in the Premier League.

Everton do need a striker who can score goals regularly, and they should be aiming better than the former Lille striker - who earns £28,000 per week as salary, according to Spotrac.com.

Moreover, Everton fans would not be too pleased if the Toffees sign a player from bitter Merseyside rivals Liverpool who is not considered good enough for the Reds’ first team and has already had two loan spells away from Anfield.
