Liverpool journalist Matt Addison has shared some news on Belgian forward Divock Origi and his future at Anfield.
This comes after Addison recently made an appearance on the Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast to go through all the latest goings-on at the club.
On the topic of Valencia winger Ferran Torres, who has been linked with a transfer move to Anfield this summer, Addison shared this latest update on the Spaniard and how Origi could impact a potential deal for Torres.
He said: “Certainly, the indications are that Divock Origi will be sticking around and won’t be leaving Liverpool and that being the case, I think it’s probably unlikely that Ferran Torres or indeed any other attacker will come into Liverpool this summer.
“Ferran Torres is certainly a name to keep an eye on, but I would imagine it’s probably Manchester City where he ends up this summer.”
Origi first signed to the Merseyside club back in 2014 from French side LOSC Lille for a fee of £11.37 million.
Since then, the 25-year-old, who is currently valued at £14.4 million according to Transfermarkt, has gone on to make a total of 138 appearances in which he has scored 33 goals and provided 12 assists along the way.
Origi scored Liverpool’s second goal in their 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur in the previous Champions League final.
Should Liverpool keep or sell Origi this summer?
The fact that Addison has claimed that Origi will be remaining at Liverpool for the foreseeable future with the club unlikely to make a move for Torres, this shows that Klopp has faith in Origi that he can continue to be a useful member of the squad going forward.
