Divock Origi wasn’t called up for Belgium’s latest national squad, despite Roberto Martinez picking an extended selection. Unless things change between now and the end of the season, it looks unlikely that the striker will make it to the delayed Euro 2020, which will naturally be a big blow for the 25-year-old.
With only 181 minutes in the Premier League for Liverpool this season, it’s clear Origi needs to think about his future come the summer and that will likely involve a change of scene.
Calciomercato report interest from Inter Milan, who are looking for a squad striker who can initially be used to give other players a rest and provide cover for injuries. The player’s name has been mentioned in transfer talks at the Italian club, and Origi is presented as very much an option for the Serie A side.
The report states, as a matter of fact, that the player ‘will leave Anfield’ at the end of the season. It’s explained that Jurgen Klopp has lost confidence in him, and that’s one of the reasons for his lack of football.
Liverpool have Origi on a contract until June 2024, so there’s likely to be issues when it comes to agreeing a transfer fee. Inter would probably look for an initial loan move, which is increasingly the way Italian sides hope to take players from the Premier League.
