Divock Origi: Liverpool striker wanted by Italian clubs but prefers Premier League move

Liverpool striker Divock Origi’s representatives have been approached by three Italian clubs regarding a pre-contract agreement this month.

Origi’s preference, however, is to stay in England, meaning either a Premier League club would have to pay money this month – or take him as a free agent in the summer when his contract runs out.

The Belgium international may wait until the summer to fully assess his options.


Origi’s contract could automatically be extended by a year depending on the number of Premier League starts he makes this season – as yet he has featured only off the bench as a substitute.

It is believed he would cost less than £10m if Liverpool were to sell him this month.

Origi has come close to leaving Liverpool before, and even spent a season on loan in Germany at Wolfsburg, but has yet to find a suitable club away from Anfield.

Last month after the 26-year-old came off the bench to score a stoppage-time winner at Wolves, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp heaped praise on Origi and suggested he would be happy for the striker to find a new club.
