Exclusive: Emile Heskey backs Liverpool to sell Divock Origi

We are expecting a raft of changes at Liverpool this summer. The Reds need to move on some deadwood and bring in some talented backup stars. We can’t have a repeat of this season. When discussing the Reds’ summer transfer business, Emile Heskey tipped Liverpool to sell Divock Origi.

Backup brigade overhaul

This season has seen an unprecedented injury crisis at Liverpool.

The Reds have lost scores of players to the treatment table this term.

These injuries have led to a slide down the table with the boss having to chop and change the side to make ends meet.

Unfortunately, our backup players haven’t been about to step into the side and maintain the quality we need from the first team.

As a result we expect a number of backup stars to be sold and replaced over the summer.

The front line in particular is in urgent need of greater strength in depth.

Emile Heskey on Liverpool and Divock Origi

This summer a forward is expected to be signed by the Reds.

We need to beef up our attacking options following a profligate few months in front of goal.

When we asked Emile Heskey who the Reds could move on this summer, the ex-England international told us:

“Divock’s one who needs to fulfill his potential. We keep talking about potential, I remember he broke on the scene in one of the Euros or the World Cup, he was only 19-years-old and he was playing in front of Christian Benteke, now he’s just stagnated.

“Don’t get me wrong he’ll be a Liverpool legend, remembered by every single fan all over the world. For him and for his own growth, he’s stagnated. I think it’s about time he moves on and gets some regular football so we can all enjoy seeing him play.”

What RTK has to say

Liverpool selling Divock Origi seems inevitable.

The Belgian isn’t good enough to back up our front three.

He’s disappointed time and again when given a chance in the side.

He’ll be remembered forever for his massive goals at massive times, he just needs to move on for his own good.

It’s time for us to see what he’s capable of as a first choice striker somewhere.
