Report: Liverpool open to selling Origi for between £15 to £20mx
Liverpool are open to selling Divock Origi for between £15m to £20m this summer, according to The Athletic.
The Belgian forward has been linked with a move away from Merseyside with a raft of sides interested in him.
Reports in early June seem to indicate that the Reds were openly looking to get rid of the centre-forward. It was suggested Origi was transfer-listed, alongside Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic.
However, it’s also claimed that the club is likely to keep him for next season. With Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane on African Cup of Nations duty from January 2022, Origi could be a key player.
James Milner described him as ‘relaxed’ in his 2019 ‘Ask A Footballer’ book.

Origi has enjoyed what can only be described as a strange career at Anfield.
He’s virtually been a back-up throughout his time at Anfield, however, has some real stand out moments for the club.
There are plenty of times in the past few seasons to show he should be commanding a fee higher than the suggested.
The former Lille man scored a pivitol winner in the December 2018 Merseyside derby, a goal that always enters you into Liverpool folklore.
He then went on to score a crucial brace in a 4-0 win over Barcelona that same season. That was swiftly followed by the second goal in the 2-0 victory over Tottenham in the Champions League final.
It was enough to see the club offer him a five-year deal, which secured both his future and value.
The centre-forward has earned legendary status, even after playing such a bit-part role at Anfield.
And when you consider that face the club sold Dominic Solanke for £19m, the reported asking price is low.
