Spanish La Liga outfit Real Betis are considering an offer for Liverpool striker Divock Origi this summer according to the latest reports coming out of the British media.

Divock Origi was a crucial squad member for Liverpool in their hunt for glory in the Champions League and the Premier League last season.

According to the specific report from Metro, Real Betis are mulling over the idea of putting in a bid for Belgian international star Origi.

The Liverpool striker has a year left on his current deal with the newly crowned champions of Europe and the Reds are yet to offer him a new deal despite his heroics last season.

Divock Origi came to the fore for Liverpool with some vital goals as the Reds missed out on the Premier League title by one point and three Champions League.

The former Lille and VFL Wolfsburg striker scored crucial goals against Everton in the Merseyside Derby in the league and against Newcastle.

His late goals against Everton and Newcastle United didn’t save Liverpool from losing the league title to rivals Manchester City.

Origi also scored three goals in the final two games of the Reds’ Champions League campaign.

His goal contributions included a brace against Spanish champions Barcelona in a 4-0 win in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal first leg which ended on a 4-3 aggregate win for the Reds.
