Divock Origi’s agent has said that the Belgian’s move to Wolfsburg should never have happened and that he will not be going out on loan again this summer.
It’s safe to say the season Origi had in Germany this season was unsatisfactory, scoring just 7 goals and providing 3 assists in 37 games.
In the 2016/17 season just before he left on loan, the Belgian didn’t perform much better, contributing to 2 goals than he would a year later.
After being shipped out on loan to Wolfsburg by Jürgen Klopp, it seems unlikely that he has a place back at Anfield, despite the fact that Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke didn’t provide much of a goal threat between them – something that cost Liverpool in Kiev.
Speaking to Turkish outlet A Spor about Origi’s future at Liverpool, the Belgian’s agent said: “For me that it was a mistake for Divock to go to Wolfsburg.
“Klopp will now make a decision on him. If he wants him to stay, then Divock will stay or if he wants him to leave then Divock will leave.”
He also confirmed the Belgian international could move to Turkey: “We are not looking to leave on loan again. We want to go a team that has made plans for him. In that regard, we’ve also spoken with Besiktas.”
Reports in the British press indicate that Klopp is after a “multi-functional forward”, with Wilfred Zaha being confirmed as a target yesterday. The Crystal Palace talisman is being offered improved terms in a bid to ward off interest from the Premier League’s top six sides.
Nabil Fekir is being pursued intensely by Liverpool, with L’Equipe journalist Erik Bielderman insisting a deal could be completed very soon.
