Liverpool have been ravaged by injuries this season. Our forward line has been relatively and mercifully unscathed in the face of the crisis. This has seen one man in particular struggle for game time; he’s now being linked with an exit. Twitter has reacted to rumours of Divock Origi being swapped for Ozan Kabak.
Divock Origi legend on the bench
Few players frustrate Kopites more than Divock Origi.
We want him to do well. We so badly want him to do well.
He is, as Jürgen Klopp pointed out, a Liverpool legend.
He has scored some of the most memorable and vital goals of our recent history.

He has come up with the goods just when we needed him.
In between these moments of heroism he has been lacklustre at best.
So often he finds himself out of the side for weeks at a time and then he puts in an anonymous performance when he is afforded a chance.
Divock Origi and Ozan Kabak swap
The Telegraph has this week suggested Divock Origi could be swapped for Ozan Kabak.
The report claims that Schalke are braced for a January approach for their 20-year-old Turkish centre back and they will be looking for Origi to be part of any deal.
The Reds are thought to be in the market for a centre back and Origi will need regular football to earn a spot at Euro 2021, the deal adds up on paper.
Kopites, however, aren’t as convinced of the swap.

Mixed feelings is about as generous as it gets.
The numbers aren’t great.
The Belgian deserves a proper send off.
Fans really aren’t having it.
