Inter want Divock Origi this summer, according to reports. The Belgian will likely leave Liverpool.
This comes from CalcioMercato. They claim Inter want to add a fourth forward to their ranks for next season and may go for Divock Origi.
They have three Italy-based options, too, with Origi being the only one based abroad. They do like the look of him, though.
The report says he wouldn’t be too expensive, nor would his £2.5m-a-year wages prove a stumbling block. Origi will also be up for grabs as Jurgen Klopp has lost faith in him.
In fact, Inter have had Origi offered to them before, it says. Now he’s on their shortlist for the summer as they figure out the right man for them.

What RTK has to say
Origi will have to decide what kind of career he wants. Moving to Inter will leave him in largely the same situation he’s in now.
We can’t imagine he’ll get in over Romelu Lukaku or Lautaro Martinez next season. It’ll be more coming off the bench, looking to impact games where and when he can.
But perhaps he wants that. Inter are a huge club and, right now, likely champions of Italy. That’s a good move for any player, let alone someone struggling for games this season.
And from Liverpool’s perspective, this is good news, too. They’ll want to obtain a halfway decent fee for Origi and bigger clubs being involved only increases their chances of doing so.
Maybe it all ends up being a win for everyone, then. We’re still a little unsure that Origi should make a sideways move for the good of his career, though.
But at the end of the day, maybe he fancies another big club. For Liverpool’s sake, we just hope they can get the money they want.
