Liverpool star tells club he ‘wants to quit this summer’

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has informed the Premier League club that he wants to leave in the summer transfer window, according to reports

The arrival and excellent start to life in the Premier League for Luis Diaz has pushed Liverpool on in their bid for trophies this season.

Jurgen Klopp now has an abundance of attacking talent to choose from, but the Colombian’s arrival has forced Origi further down the pecking order at Anfield.

The Belgium international has still managed to provide five goals and two assists from his 14 appearances across all competitions this season.

Origi is held in high regard by Liverpool supporters as he scored in the 2018/19 Champions League final against Tottenham, with the Reds going on to win 2-0 to lift the trophy for the sixth time in their history.

But it looks like he will move on in the summer with Football Insider claiming that Origi has told Liverpool that he ‘wants to quit this summer’ after not getting enough playing time.

Origi has ‘made up his mind to leave at the end of the season’ and Liverpool are ‘expected to green light the Belgium international’s departure after being willing to listen to offers for him in previous windows’.

The 26-year-old still has a contract until the summer of 2024 with an option of another year included in his contract.

Klopp hinted earlier this week that Origi and his Liverpool team-mate Takumi Minamino will be allowed the leave in the summer.

“It is crazy because we still have Divock and Taki on top of that,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “It is incredibly hard for him and for me as well because it is really tough these kind of things. Taki is in an incredible moment.

“It is unlikely with the size of the squad that we now stay exactly like this together. For sure, some of the players do not play often enough for their own understanding and we will see what will come in the summer and find solutions for those situations.

“But the core of the group has to stay together. There is no doubt about that.”
