Wolves are currently 7th in the English Premier League and look set to qualify for the Europa League next season. They can also consider themselves to have an outside chance of finishing top four if things go their way.

Raul Jimenez has established himself as the first-choice striker. The addition of Origi will add another effective threat to a free-flowing Wolves team as they look to climb up the table.

Origi stepped up for Liverpool numerous times last season. His winners against Everton and Newcastle coupled with his performances against Barcelona and Tottenham will live long in Reds folklore.

The striker scored a last-minute equalizer against Arsenal in the Carabao Cup this season as Liverpool went on to win the match on penalties.

The 24-year-old has made 125 appearances for Liverpool and has scored 33 goals. (h/t Whoscored)
