Chirivella has been at Anfield for four years after making the switch from home club Valencia in 2013.
The midfield enforcer has however been limited to just five first team appearances for Liverpool and the former Spain Under-17 international also spent the second half of the last campaign on loan in Holland at Go Ahead Eagles.
The youngster played 17 times for Go Ahead Eagles in total, but was unable to prevent them from suffering relegation from the Eredivisie.

He will now be hoping for more success with Willem before making his return to Liverpool at the end of the season with three years remaining on his contract.
Football Insider verdict:
With the likes of Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and the returning Jordan Henderson all competing for a central midfield spot in Jurgen Klopp’s side, Chirivella is unlikely to add to any of his senior appearances for the Reds next season. At 20 also many would have been hoping that the Spaniard would be close to reaching his potential, meaning that first team experience is now best for his career, whether it is away from Anfield, or at the famous club. This is now a deal that looks best for all parties and maybe Chirivella can start pushing for more of a first team claim in the Liverpool team in the future.
