Young Liverpool duo Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson may be the final two nails in the coffin for Divock Origi at Liverpool.
The Belgium international is still at Anfield to some people’s surprise, only he hasn’t appeared all season.
Jurgen Klopp hasn’t given him any game time at all this term, despite delivering a positive assessment of the player in pre-season.
Some anticipated that he would be loaned out again. But Klopp didn’t sanction a temporary move with the player wanting to fight for his place.
It was a show of defiance by Origi, but he has very much turned into a forgotten man.
Origi to Galatasaray in January?
The former Lille forward could be offered an escape route by Turkish giants Galatasaray.
According to Turkish-Football, they are ready to explore the possibility of a loan move with an option to buy.
Origi, a Brendan Rodgers signing in 2014, simply hasn’t cut it at Anfield. He has huge competition in the forward areas.
Kent and Wilson far more promising
Two players that appear to be developing well out on loan are Kent at Rangers and Wilson at Derby County.
Wilson recently helped sink Manchester United in the Carabao Cup third round.
Origi’s decision to reject a loan seems to have been exacerbated by the young duo’s promising starts in the Scottish Premiership and the Championship.
Surely Klopp is watching from afar, and the pair could well prompt the German to finally cash in on the beleaguered winger, and instead consider them for first-team football at Anfield.
