Divock Origi

English Premier League leaders Liverpool have given a reply to Wolves that they will not be able to have their wish of securing the signature of Divock Origi in this winter transfer window.

Wolves have longed been interested in the Liverpool forward as they set to strengthen their attack force in order to make a push through the second half of the season.

It was earlier believed that Divock Origi is unhappy at the club for his lack of playing time as he has only been relegated to bench roles behind Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in the club.

Divock Origi’s only meaningful impact this season was when he came in from the bench to help manager Jurgen Klopp win the Merseyside derby game against Everton in the last minutes.

Opinion are that Divock Origi is still a major member of the team who is needed and will not be allowed to move away from a decision that will no doubt hurt Wolves who have tabled their interest for him already.

With Liverpool already doing away with Dominic Solanke, it will be impossible for them to do away with Divock Origi again as they will be lacking in options for the attack.

Marouane Fellaini

Three-time European champions Manchester United have been dealt a big transfer blow after midfielder Marouane Fellaini was ruled out of action for a long period.

The Belgian international midfielder is almost certain to miss the next four to six weeks of football action after he suffered a calf injury.

Marouane Fellaini has fallen out of favour at Manchester United since former striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer became the manager.

Norwegian tactician Solskjaer was made the Red Devils manager until the end of the season after Jose Mourinho was dismissed from his job as the Manchester United boss.

The Old Trafford giants were hoping to raise around £15m from the sale of Marouane Fellaini but the latest development might have jeopardized the club’s ability to raise money by selling him.

Several clubs were interested in a transfer for Fellaini and it remains to be seen whether they will retain their interest in him despite the aforementioned calf injury.

European teams like Italian Serie A club AC Milan and Portuguese champions FC Porto have registered their interest in Marouane Fellaini alongside Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Former Everton midfielder Fellaini has played just one game for Manchester United since Solskjaer became the manager and that was in the 2-0 victory over Reading at home in the third round of the FA Cup.
