Jurgen Klopp has refused to rule out the departure of more players amid speculation linking Divock Origi to a move away from the club.
The Reds boss has admitted that possible new arrivals could mean having to consider shipping certain players out before Thursday’s transfer deadline.
Origi was left out of the squad for both Liverpool’s midweek Champions League playoff win over Hoffenheim and Sunday’s Premier League triumph at home to Arsenal.
Having suggested earlier in the week that the Belgian would have his opportunity to impress this season, Klopp has hinted that a move may be on the cards.
Speaking in his post-match press conference, he said: “We will see,” as reported by the Liverpool Echo.
“That’s not something to talk about here. If players come in, I think it makes sense to think about what we do on the other side. They’re obviously involved in this (the players). I’m not sure, we will see, you have to wait.”
Talk of possible new arrivals could refer to Monaco’s Thomas Lemar, with Liverpool having reportedly made a £55.5million bid for the 21-year-old.
Origi finds himself in a difficult situation at Anfield after falling behind first choice central striker Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and now even 19-year-old Dominic Solanke in the pecking order.
His stuttering progress has been the cause of much frustration on Merseyside, with glimpses of talent failing to materialise into prolonged periods of good form for the 22-year-old.
A loan move, if he is to leave, seems the most likely option given Klopp’s notable appreciation for Origi’s obvious potential.
