Journalist Fabrizio Romano has recently spoken about the future of Liverpool star Divock Origi.
Romano appeared on the latest episode of the Here We Go podcast and discussed numerous potential transfers in European football. He also shed some light on Liverpool and the club’s potential incomings and outgoings.
One player that he talked about was the future of Belgian forward Origi. Romano stated that he’s someone who Liverpool will be actively looking to sell this summer.
Does Origi have a future at Liverpool?
The Reds signed Origi from Lille in the summer of 2014 for a fee of £10 million, when the Belgian was only 19 years old. During his time at Liverpool, Origi has won the Premier League and the Champions League.
Romano revealed the latest on the forward’s situation, claiming that the Reds would want a fee of €20 million (£17.1 million) to part ways with Origi.
The journalist said: “Yes, he is one of the players who is on the list to leave the club. Let’s see if a proposal around €20 million arrives, but he’s one of the players who will leave the club.”
TIF Thoughts on Origi’s future…
Origi failed to become a regular for Liverpool in the 2020/21 campaign, as he played less than 200 minutes in the Premier League. Even in the 2019/20 league season, he had played only 703 minutes of first-team football (as per Transfermarkt).
It shows that Origi’s importance at Liverpool has perhaps reduced and if the club could still earn £17.1 million from his sale, it would be a very good deal since they’d make a profit out of what they initially signed him for.
