Moyes doesn’t fancy Liverpool man

West Ham are unlikley to move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi, Claret and Hugh has learnt.

Yesterday Jim White and Trevor Sinclair have offered their reaction to the news that West Ham may move for Liverpool striker Divock Origi.

Journalist Alex Crook told talkSPORT about the Irons’ interest in the 26-year-old Belgian live on-air on Wednesday afternoon.

He said: “The other name to look out for is Divock Origi at Liverpool, he’s on the books of agent Will Salthouse who, as I’m sure you know, is very close to the West Ham hierarchy and they do need a striker, so keep tabs on that one over the coming weeks.”

Well, Origi is not on Will Salthouse’s books as we understand it and C&H believes he is not currently one of David Moyes targets up front, despite a desire to bring in back up to Mikey Antonio.

Perhaps he could be considered as a late loan option as a backup if other striker targets are not landed but as it stands it is no go on Origi.

He has struggled for minutes at Liverpool but has made a total of 157 appearances for the club, scoring 35 goals, while he also managed to lay on 14 assists.

  1. If we can only go for Will Salthouse players it shows why our recruiting is a mess and why the overhaul of recruitment is essential. What has been clear for many seasons is that other than with MP we didn’t get transfers over the line early pursued players like Bacca and El Nesri who were not interested to play for our club and made derisory offers for them that got up the noses of the selling clubs chairmen. Hopefully when Rob Newman starts an under new mgmt banner can be unfurled and he will have autonomy to sign the players the mgr needs.

  2. The worry for me is we don’t seem to be negotiating for any forward . We appear to be low balling any offer knowing it won’t be accepted. Does Moyes actually want anyone or is it Sullivan up to the normal crap, we tried we failed . Whoever is to blame they need to sort it as this window is so poor up to now . We are in Europe and going nowhere fast at this moment there must be money for players somewhere. Not even a week to the start of PL this simply is not good enough
