Belgian international striker Divock Origi stepped up for Liverpool when the Reds fans least expected during the run to their Champions League triumph last season but the player could be facing a bleak future at the club despite his Champions League heroics.

Origi has one year remaining on his contract with the Reds at the moment and the Champions League holders are relaxed about his contract situation according to the report from the London Evening Standard.

The former Lille player might leave Liverpool this summer if the Reds want to recoup their transfer fee in the event that he fails to agree to a new deal or the Reds might opt to retain his services for this season thereby letting him leave the club for free next summer.

Divock Origi signed for the Champions League holders from French Ligue 1 side Lille in 2014 but he didn’t join the Reds until the summer of 2015.

He has spent two loan spells away from Liverpool during his career with the Merseyside giants.

Origi was at Lille during the 2014/15 season on loan before joining German club VFL Wolfsburg on a temporary deal during the 2017/18 campaign.

The Belgian striker scored seven goals for Liverpool in just seven starts last season.

Divock Origi scored some crucial goals for Liverpool last season especially in Champions League where he netted three goals in the final two games including the final clash with Tottenham Hotspur.

He came off the bench to score and also seal a 2-0 final win over Spurs.
