EPL: This Liverpool player now ready for January move

Liverpool will soon be without Belgium striker Divock Origi as he is set to leave the club in the January winter transfer window after a disappointing season so far.

The Champions League game against Midtjylland on Tuesday evening saw Divock Origi put in another disappointing performance after he was given the opportunity alongside other backup players by manager Jurgen Klopp.

The disappointing performance by the 25-year-old have sparked speculations that he will now leave the club as he has not had the best of time at Anfield for the past one year.

Belgium outlet Veotbal reports that Divock Origi does not see a future with the Merseyside outfit again, especially as the arrival of Diogo Jota has relegated him and taken him down the pecking order.

Divock Origi must leave the Reds team in order to save his national team career as leaving Liverpool will give him fresh opportunities elsewhere and playing time.

The report, therefore, claims Divock Origi will join Club Brugge in his homeland in the January window either on a loan deal or he could decide for a permanent move as a place in the Jurgen Klopp’s team is no longer guaranteed.

Divock Origi still has a running contract with the English Premier League title holders until 2024 and a permanent move will be the best deal for him and his suitors if his asking price will be affordable.

The Belgium international has been a very important player in Jurgen Klopp’s team but he is mostly used from the bench to seal wins for the club> that was seen in Liverpool’s Champions League win last two seasons.

However, it is yet to be known if the former Borussia Dortmund boss will release the Belgium international in the January transfer window, knowing how important he can be, coming from the bench in important games.
