Liverpool’s forgotten man Divock Origi reportedly wants to fight for his Anfield future in pre-season and he is a player that manage Jurgen Klopp should be looking to keep around.
Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws reports that the 23-year-old wants to try catch the eye during pre-season training and salvage his career with the Reds.
The Belgian centre-forward has become a forgotten man at the Merseyside club, as Klopp discovered a scintillating attacking trio while he was out on loan last season.
He featured 36 times for German outfit Wolfsburg, scoring seven goals and supplying three assists in return.
Liverpool do need some extra cover in the striker position as a back-up to Roberto Firmino and Origi should be given the opportunity to fill that role in the next campaign.
Origi has a decent strike rate of 21 goals in 77 appearances for Liverpool’s first team, but has lost his way a little in the past couple of years.
At his age he can definitely rediscover his best form and is a physical attacker that can provide Klopp with a plan B in matches.
He has shown he can be a clinical finisher inside the penalty area and the fact he wants to fight for his Liverpool future is certainly something that will please supporters.
It would be no surprise to see Origi leave the club and go on to achieve something great at another team, which is why Klopp must give him a reprieve this summer.
In the latest Liverpool transfer news, the Reds have switched their attention to a Barcelona player.
