Divock Origi has become a peripheral figure at Liverpool since he returned to Anfield from his loan spell at Wolfsburg in the summer.

His first appearance of the season was during the Reds’ defeat to Red Star Belgrade and he was on the pitch for 11 minutes.

The 23-year-old struggled to have any impact in the Champions League tie and then came on as a late substitute against Everton in the Merseyside derby clash.

Origi scored the winner in stoppage time on Sunday and Het Nieuwsblad claims the Belgium international will be hoping his ‘crazy goal’ will help get a new opportunity.

It’s also claimed that with his heroics against the Toffees, he has returned to surface at Liverpool and the ‘whole of Europe’ is watching him. That may be a stretch.

The Belgium newspaper talks about how the striker was no longer needed for Jurgen Klopp for this season and his representative was looking to find a solution.

Besiktas, Wolverhampton Wanderers and Borussia Dortmund were all interested in him in the summer, but he missed the opportunity to leave the Premier League side.

For this reason, Origi did not feature regularly and injury also didn’t help him to improve his chances of getting into the team.


The next step for the Belgium international is to get more minutes during the busy period in December and remain hopeful that his performances will attract another club to make a move for him in January. 

His contract at Anfield runs down in 2020 and the insinuation is he won’t sign a new deal with Liverpool.

Het Nieuwsblad end their story by saying the ‘hype can come back again’.
