The Liverpool fans here in the Transfer Tavern have been looking forward to Jurgen Klopp’s first summer transfer window, although a stellar signing remains elusive thus far.
The Reds finished in a disappointing eight position in the Premier League last season and the German boss will be keen to push towards the Champions League places next season.
Our landlord has spotted some news via Bleacher Report that claims striker Divock Origi could be set for a switch to Atletico Madrid.
The Champions League finalists will reportedly turn their attentions to the Belgian striker should a move for former striker Diego Costa not be completed.
Liverpool look short of options in attack and one Reds follower by the pool table believes that the club should be looking to keep hold of the 21-year-old, with a bright future on the horizon for Origi.
The Reds have just Daniel Sturridge and Danny Ings in attack and Origi’s departure would leave them exposed in attack.
Liverpool fans, what do you make to this news? Is it worth keeping hold of Origi? Who could come in and replace him in attack?
