Liverpool attacker Divock Origi has reportedly emerged as a transfer target for Brighton and could be sold in order to balance the books.
The Daily Mail have claimed the Seagulls are looking at the 25-year-old, who has not yet appeared for the Reds in 2020/21.
The Belgian international is currently on the fringes at Anfield, with Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino firmly established in the starting XI.
The star has made 140 appearances in total for Liverpool, scoring 34 goals and making 12 assists.
He was the hero of Liverpool’s Champions League triumph in 2018/19, scoring twice against Barcelona in the famous semi-final second leg, and then against Tottenham Hotspur in the final.
He has written himself into Liverpool folklore with his contributions, but the feeling amongst many Reds supporters is that Origi’s time at the club well could be coming to an end.
It could be that an offer comes in from Brighton, who have already signed Adam Lallana after he ran down his contract at Liverpool.
TBR’s View – Brighton a good move for Origi
Going to the Amex Stadium could be a nice move for £45,000-a-week star Origi (Spotrac).
At the age of 25, the next few years in his career are crucial.
Realistically he needs to be playing regular football before he hits his peak years, and he would likely get more minutes on the south coast.
