Fulham

Hammers join race for Fulham target

10th January 2019, 12:58 by Alex Jack

Fulham look set to have a battle on their hands to land Liverpool striker Divock Origi, with London rivals West Ham also interested.

The 23-year-old Belgian finds himself down the pecking order at Anfield, with the Reds' front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino driving their title bid.

Reports have suggested Liverpool could allow Origi out on loan to get some game time and Fulham are one of the clubs who have been strongly linked with the youngster.

However, it appears that West Ham are leading the chase to sign the striker, who has already been sent out on loan to the likes of Lille and Wolfsburg in the past.

Fulham are eager to bolster their attacking options this month, having only secured three wins in the Premier League so far this season.
