‘Would take something special’ – James Pearce shares latest update on Divock Origi’s Liverpool future

Posted by

James Pearce has confirmed that Divock Origi won’t be sold during the winter window.

The Athletic reporter shared the update in question on Twitter, with the publication noting that a ‘significantly higher’ bid than the £7m touted would be required to prise the Belgian away from Anfield.

The former Lille frontman’s contract is set to expire come the summer, raising questions about whether Liverpool would be best-advised to take whatever value they can manage for the player.
