Liverpool journalist Ian Doyle has been sharing his thoughts on the possibility of Reds attacker Divock Origi making a move away from Anfield during the upcoming summer transfer window. 

This comes after Doyle made an appearance on a recent episode of the Liverpool Echo’s Blood Red Podcast where he discussed a variety of topics concerning ’s side.

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

On the subject of Origi and the possibility of him leaving the Merseyside this summer, Doyle had this to say on the matter. (32.43)

He said: “I mean, there will be clubs interested, it’s whether he wants to go because wherever he goes it will be a step down from Liverpool.

“So, he’ll want to go somewhere where he’s going to be playing and you’d imagine he would be.

“What would you get for him? £12 million, possibly. I mean, if it had been this time last year you’re looking at £20 million.”

Liverpool originally signed Origi back in the 2014 summer transfer window from recently-crowned French champions for a fee of £11.37 million.

The Reds then immediately loaned the Belgian back to the French club before bringing him back in June 2015.

In August 2017, Origi then went on loan to German club Wolfsburg until June 2018.

Overall, the 26-year-old, who is currently valued at £14.4 million, has made 157 appearances for the Reds across all competitions in which he has managed to score 35 goals and provide 14 assists along the way (per Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Ian Doyle’s comments on Origi…

Given how Origi only made nine appearances for Liverpool in the Premier League this season and the fact that his last one saw him come on a late substitute during their 2-0 defeat against Everton back in February, this suggests to us that the Belgian is not a vital figure for Klopp anymore and could spell the end of his Liverpool career.

Do you think Liverpool would be able to get more than £12m for Origi this summer?

Yes

Yes

No

No

In our view, if Liverpool are intending to sell Origi this summer, then it would make sense for them to try and pick up a suitable transfer fee for him that would suit all parties involved.
