Just days after Divock Origi scored the late winner for Liverpool against Everton in the derby, Het Nieuwsblad reported the ‘whole of Europe is watching’ the striker and he’s unlikely to sign a new contract at Anfield.
A day after the report from Belgium, Spanish newspaper AS talks about a new suitor for the 23-year-old – Real Betis.
In the report, they mention how he hasn’t managed to have any impact since he swapped Lille for the Reds.
The former Ligue 1 man has never really made it into Jurgen Klopp’s plans at the Merseyside club, which is why he was loaned out to Wolfsburg last season, where he continued his struggle.
Having failed to start regularly for the Premier League side, AS mentions the Belgium international, who is 23, will have opportunities to move as it is ‘time to succeed elsewhere’.
Betis want to strengthen their strike force in January and Origi is now on their agenda, but he’s not the only player they are looking at because the La Liga outfit have been offered several players.
On December 5th, we carried a report from ABC Sevilla, who claimed that Tottenham’s Fernando Llorente and Lucas Perez of West Ham United were offered to the Spanish side.
