Divock Origi should push to leave Liverpool this summer in search of regular game time, according to Frank McAvennie.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former West Ham and Celtic forward said while the 25-year-old is “a wonderful player”, he is “not going to get much of a chance” with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino at Anfield.
Origi has played just 17 times across all competitions for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, and just six of those appearances have been starts.
Football Insider understands that Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on the Belgium international ahead of the summer.
The centre-forward, who signed a contract extension in July 2019, could be available for as little as £12million in the next transfer window.
When asked for his assessment of Origi’s future, McAvennie told Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs: “I never thought he would be a regular starter at Liverpool.
“A wonderful player and a wonderful talent but when you have Mane, Salah and Firmino you are not going to get much of a chance. It is a strange one.
“Origi has to leave if he wants a chance of playing regular football. He has to push to leave.
“He has probably sat there thinking, ‘Maybe I’ll get a chance if somebody leaves.’ But the front three have barely let Klopp down and it does not look like they will be leaving either.”
