The young Belgian has struggled with niggling injuries throughout the season.

In the summer of 2014 Liverpool decided to snap up talented Belgian Divock Origi.

Origi had recently impressed at the World Cup with Belgium. His form was so good that Liverpool signed him. They spent, according to the BBC, £10 million on the 19-year-old before immediately loaning him back to former club Lille.

He joined up with Liverpool permanently last summer but has struggled to consistently make his mark. 

He joined up with Liverpool permanently last summer but has struggled to consistently make his mark.

From 21 games this season he has five goals, three of which came against Southampton in a top performance in December, but overall he has struggled to shine.

Speaking to Het Nieuwsblad in Belgium this week the talented forward was speaking about how he is trying to improve, suggesting his gym work is helping a lot:

"I did not know what to expect. In the beginning it was difficult. I came from a different league and had to adapt.

"Then I started working. I became physically stronger and gained kilos of muscle. The hours in the gym finally paid off.

"Now I have to stay fresh in my head and give everything."

Origi has struggled with niggling injury problems all season but has been available for the past month after seemingly getting himself fit.

His work in the gym might be helping out and now the plan will be to thrive throughout 2016 under Jurgen Klopp in what might be a change of tact under their new German boss.
