Divock Origi has a ‘serious problem’ at Liverpool and could leave in January, Voetbal suggest.
Following the addition of Diogo Jota, Origi has slipped down to fifth choice attacking in Liverpool’s team – and that is described as a big issue for him by the Belgian media.
Origi is hoping to be a part of his nation’s squad for the European Championships, but knows that his chances are limited unless he receives game time.
With Jurgen Klopp likely to keep overlooking him, it is now claimed that it is ‘quite possible’ that Origi leaves in January.
The report suggests that Club Brugge are keen on the forward, who was described as a ‘big talent’ by Brendan Rodgers (Liverpool Echo), and could make a bid in the January transfer window.
Origi would surely be a regular starter for Brugge if he was to join, and Liverpool may well decide that the time is right to cash in on him.
As well as the aforementioned Jota, the Reds also have Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri who can perform in the attacking slots, so even if they sold Origi they would be well covered out wide.
Origi has spent six years at Anfield and has chipped in with some important goals.
But his recent performances have done little to suggest he is worthy of a regular starting spot, and it may be best for all parties if he does move on.
