Liverpool tipped to spend big on two new signings after Origi update - Robinson
Liverpool are looking to offload Divock Origi to fund two signings this summer.
That is the view of former Spurs and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about reported interest from Wolves in the 26-year-old.
According to The Mirror (August 3rd), Wolves and Napoli are eyeing a move for the Belgium forward who is deemed surplus to requirements at Anfield.
However, it is said Origi’s potential suitors have been put off by Liverpool’s £20million asking price.
The striker’s exit would bring much-needed funds into Anfield while also freeing up a non-homegrown spot in Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
When asked by Football Insider‘s Dylan Childs for his assessment of Origi’s future, Robinson said:

“Origi has been a bit-part player for Liverpool but make no mistake, he is a very good player. £20million for a player of his quality in this day and age really isn’t much.
“He has shown as an impact player off the bench for Liverpool just how dangerous he can be. Over the years he’s scored some really important goals for them.
“Liverpool are trying to sell players on the peripheral which will allow Klopp to go into the market to strengthen in one or two positions with more money than he would have previously had.
“They will obviously try and get as much money as they can for the players that they don’t want and £20million for Origi would be great business. We could then see two new signings.”
