Liverpool journalist Matt Addison has shared a transfer claim concerning Reds attacker Divock Origi and his future at Anfield. 

This comes after Addison made an appearance on a recent episode of the Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast where he spoke about a number of topics concerning the Merseyside club.

First up in this Mo Salah quiz, what is his current squad number for Liverpool?

On the subject of potential outgoing transfers during the upcoming summer window, Addison had this to say about Origi in particular. (1.44)

He said: “It looks like Divock Origi could well be on his way out this summer.

“More speculation about that and Liverpool, potentially wanting to let him go has come out [recently] as well, so it does look like there’s going to be a bit of a shake-up.”

Origi joined Liverpool back in the 2014 summer transfer window from French club LOSC Lille for a fee of £11.37 million.

Overall, the Belgian, who is currently valued at £14.4 million, has made 157 appearances for Liverpool across all competitions, prior to their Premier League clash against Wolves, in which he has managed to score 35 goals and provide 14 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

One of Origi’s most memorable goals for the Reds saw him double their lead in their 2-0 win over Hotspur in the 2019 Champions League .

TIF Thoughts on Matt Addison’s transfer claim on Origi…

Despite managing to provide an assist during Liverpool’s recent 2-0 win over RB Leipzig in the Champions League, the fact that the 25-year-old has only managed to score one goal in 17 appearances across all competitions for the Reds suggests he may not be at the required level to continue his journey with the club.

Do you think Liverpool should sell Origi this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, if Liverpool can pick up a decent transfer fee this summer if they do decide to sell Origi and use that to sign another attacker that can have more of a significant impact in front of goal, this would be the ideal situation for the club.
