Divock Origi was more than a handful on several occasions last season, but none more important than his contributions in our Champions League campaign.
The Belgian international was pivotal in our famous comeback against Barcelona at Anfield, scoring twice, and he’ll go down in club folklore for netting our second in the final.
You’d expect a club to be desperate to tie down a player that’s put in a shift like that, and Liverpool reportedly are – as per the Liverpool Echo, but it’s not that simple.
Bobby Fimino is the Reds’ first choice striker and Origi can do very little to change that. The players offer something different, and what the Brazilian offers is typically crucial to how Klopp’s teams play.
So the Belgian isn’t guaranteed first team football next season, not on a regular basis anyway, so his agent has been reportedly offering him to clubs around Europe – as per the Metro.
The same report states that Real Betis are trying to lure Origi away from Anfield before his contract is up.
The Reds have all the cards here – the Belgian still has a year left on his deal, and likely wouldn’t kick up a fuss if he stuck around for another season to leave on a free next summer.
