Pundit tips January exit for Origi after Klopp issues Liverpool transfer update
Divock Origi could play his way out of Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp opened up on the player’s future.
That’s according to former Leeds stopper Paddy Kenny, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about Klopp’s comments.
As quoted by Sky Sports (16 September), Klopp revealed he was surprised by the lack of interest in the “sensational” Origi during the summer transfer window.
The Reds boss admitted he was braced for a “proper offer” for the attacker.
Origi, 26, made his first appearance of the season on Wednesday night as Liverpool beat AC Milan 3-2.
The Belgian international provided an excellent assist for Mo Salah as he levelled the game at 2-2.

Kenny claims Origi could earn himself a January transfer if he keeps up that level of performance.
“Klopp is trying to drum up interest,” Kenny told Football Insider correspondent Adam Williams.
“He had a really good game against AC Milan. He did well to set up Salah for the second goal.
“I think they were trying to get him out last summer. I can actually see him playing a part this season.
“If he carries on playing like he did against AC Milan they will keep him.
“That being said, those performances will drum up interest so if he does carry on playing like that we could be looking at a January move.”
Origi is yet to play in the Premier League this season.
Last season he scored one goal in 17 total outings for the Reds.
