Liverpool will not be selling Divock Origi in the January transfer window, according to the Northern Echo. Their unwillingness to do a deal in the middle of the season is apparently a big blow for Newcastle, with newly appointed manager Eddie Howe keen for his early signings at the club to be players with notable Premier League experience.
Origi has been on Liverpool’s books since 2014, though he spent the 2014-15 season on loan at his former club Lille. Having arrived to Anfield in 2015, the 26-year-old striker has so far made a total of 164 appearances for the club and scored 38 goals, along with 16 assists, in all competitions. He was sent out on loan to VfL Wolfsburg in 2017-18.
With the Merseysiders boasting attackers of extreme quality in Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, and Diogo Jota fitting in perfectly since arriving from Wolverhampton Wanderers last year, Origi hasn’t been able to establish himself as anything more than a fringe player under Jurgen Klopp, even though some of his goals down the years were vitally important.
