Sportskeeda's take on the EPL transfer rumours of 24th July
Making sense of all the rumours floating around the European football scene.
Divock Origi to Atletico Madrid
Atletico Madrid are looking to sign a striker this summer, after shipping Jackson Martinez to China for big money in January. Spanish newspaper ABC say Liverpool striker Divock Origi is on the wishlist of Diego Simeone.
Experts say: The Liverpool based journalists have been silent on this one, and that’s probably because they don’t see it happening.
Our take: Atletico Madrid have been linked to Gonzalo Higuain, Romelu Lukaku, Edinson Cavani, Diego Costa, and Kevin Gameiro, and it really looks a bit difficult they’ll sign any of them. That should probably also be the case with Divock Origi. Jurgen Klopp wanted to sign the Belgian whilst at Borussia Dortmund and started him in key games last season. The young striker has also done well, so it really difficult to see Liverpool selling him this summer.
Chances of it happening: 2/10
