Liverpool are likely going to move on a string of first team fringe players this summer. We have seen this season that the backup brigade aren’t up to the task and they need replacing urgently. A number of players look nearly certain to leave; Liverpool should sell Divock Origi but they need to include a buy-back clause.
Bench upgrade needed
Liverpool are going to need to make some tough decisions over the summer.
We need a clearout of the deadwood: both the unreliable fitness wise and those we can’t count on to step up to the plate when senior players are injured or in need of a rest.
We can expect the club to cash in on Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic.
Whilst a number of other players will also be heading for the exit door, it seems Liverpool will inevitably have to part ways with Divock Origi.
Interest in Divock Origi
There will be plenty of suitors for the Belgian this summer.
According to El Gol Digital, Real Sociedad, Aston Villa, Newcastle United and Wolves are all interested in Divock Origi.
The Spanish side are said to be looking at the forward as a replacement for Alexander Isak who will be in high demand this summer.
However, they fear competition from the Premier League with a host of clubs ready to battle it out for the big goal Belgian.
Buy-back clause needed
At just 25-years-old there is still plenty of time for Divock Origi to develop.
Liverpool should insert a buy-back clause in any sale.
He boasts 29 caps for his country and he’s barely started a game for the Reds; he obviously has unlocked potential.
The striker could go on to become a lethal forward when he’s given a regular starting berth somewhere – if he does kick on we need to reserve the right to bring him back.
