According to a recent report by the Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp has decided to keep hold of Divock Origi for the time being at least until the end of this season. The same report has also revealed that the Belgian forward was heavily linked with a move away from Anfield with the likes of Wolves, West Ham and Fulham all keeping tabs on his situation at Merseyside. However, the Reds let Dominic Solanke leave earlier this month after agreeing on a £19m deal with Bournemouth for the English talent, so Klopp wants to keep Origi so that he is not short on numbers up top.
The Belgian centre-forward has found first-team opportunities hard to come by at Merseyside this season, so he needs to make a switch away from Anfield soon to get his career back on track. Having said that, Origi has still managed to play a significant part in Liverpool’s remarkable season so far.
He scored the winning goal in the dying embers of the game against Everton at Anfield earlier this season. Origi also managed to find the back of the net against Wolves on Monday night, but it turned out to be a consolation in the end as the Reds suffered a bitter 2-1 loss at the Molineaux Stadium.
The 23-year-old has featured in 4 matches for the Reds this term and has two goals to his name across all competitions. He has fallen behind the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge who are all ahead of him in the Anfield pecking order.
Now that Liverpool have got only two competitions to participate in, it is extremely difficult to see how Origi will get any game time on the pitch.
However, it will be a good move for the Reds to keep hold of him just in case of an emergency. Klopp is currently going through a mini injury crisis at the back with Virgil Van Dijk the club’s only fit senior centre-back who is available for selection. This recent situation goes to show how difficult life can be in the Premier League if a club does not have enough depth in their squad.
Overall, it seems like the correct call to keep hold of Origi for the immediate future, but it could derail the Belgian’s career even more as it is quite unlikely that he will get any game time in the coming months. The best that the player can hope for is winning some silverware in May by staying at Anfield beyond this month.
