According to reports English Premier League Liverpool has listed seven players they want to offload and Divock Origi is among the players they won’t sell out. The report has it that the Belgium star will leave the club when his contract expires at the end of this month alongside other players on the list.
Origi, Karius among Seven Players set to Leave Liverpool
The other players on the list include goalkeeper Loris Karius, winger Sheyi Ojo and midfielder Ben Woodburn will also leave Anfield, along with three unnamed academy players. Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp had already said Origi would leave at the end of the season.
The 27-year-old has since been linked with a move to the Italian top side AC Milan. He scored some of the most memorable goals in the club’s history, despite playing mainly as a substitute. He has not played enough games this season to trigger a one-year extension to his contract.
Origi was signed by Brendan Rodgers in 2014 and scored 41 goals for the Reds in 175 games, with his time at Anfield broken up with loan spells at Lille and Wolfsburg. He will be remembered for his goals against Barcelona in Liverpool’s stunning comeback in the Champions League semi-final in 2019 and the second goal in the 2-0 win over Tottenham in the final.
Goalkeeper Karius on the other hand played 49 games under Klopp during his first two seasons on Merseyside but has been on loan at Besiktas and Union Berlin.
