Liverpool reject £10m bid for Champions League hero; Reds holding out for £20m

Posted by

Liverpool have reportedly rejected a bid of £10m from Wolves for out-of-favour forward Divock Origi, according to journalist Ekrem Konur.

This comes from, with the publication claiming that the Reds are holding out for double the fee at £20m.

The Belgian suffered from a lacklustre campaign last term, failing to register a single league goal alongside fellow backup option Xherdan Shaqiri, who has also been linked with making an Anfield exit.

Considering that the former Lille star’s contract expires next summer, £20m seems a somewhat lofty fee to request from Wolves at this point in time.

It wasn’t too long ago that Origi played an instrumental role in our famous Champions League victory against Barcelona (not to mention scoring in the final against Tottenham), however, there’s a sense that past glories have since faded and can’t be used to bolster the price-tag.

We at the Empire of the Kop would imagine that £15m is a more realistic target and that a £20m asking price, if reported accurately, is only an attempt to secure a reasonable bid meeting us in the middle.

Liverpool fans are baffled as to why the club hasn’t tried to hijack Arsenal’s move for a Bobby Firmino regen
