According to Eurosport, Liverpool striker Divock Origi will leave the club this summer as he looks to find regular first-team football elsewhere.
In a report assessing the Reds’ attacking options, Eurosport claim that Origi will ‘be on his way out this summer’, which will ‘open up a spot’ for Jurgen Klopp to bring in a new attacking player.
Origi has often flattered to deceive during his time with Liverpool. However, he will forever be lauded thanks to some memorable goals including one in the Champions League final against Spurs and a telling contribution against Barcelona on the way to that final.
But it would appear that the Reds now need to move on and bring in someone more reliable as a back up number nine. Roberto Firmino is the main man there at the moment, but is often overplayed.
A number of clubs could well line up to take Origi. Despite his poor looking goalscoring record – just 35 in over 150 Reds apperances – he does have experience and, at just 25, has his prime ahead.
TBR View: Liverpool need to move on from Origi, this was always expected
Most Liverpool fans won’t be surprised at all to hear Origi is on his way out of the club. He’s simply not lived up to the standards needed at Anfield, despite a few huge goals.
He can leave with his head held high if and when he does leave, however.
A league winner, a Champions League winner, and a big contributor in big games mean he’ll always be etched into the history of the Reds.
