After a summer splurge of £163.98 million, Liverpool’s summer business is pretty much over.
Klopp’s now has one of the best starting XI in the world and will probably challenge City for the title this season.
After a crushing loss in the Champions League Final and an underachieving Premier League campaign, Klopp is now on the clock to win some silverware in the next season or two. Armed with the best Liverpool squad in recent memory, fans will be excited about what could happen on Merseyside this season.
While the club have been busy bringing in some of the best talent, they now need to shed some dead wood from the squad and recover some of their £163.98 million outlay.
Turkish paper HaberTurk via the Mirror are claiming that Liverpool have dropped their asking price for Divock Origi.
The Belgian international has fallen out of favour at the club since his arrival in 2015 and is now deemed surplus to requirements at the club. Originally, Liverpool were holding out for a fee close to £26 million but according to the report, Liverpool have lowered their asking price.
With Dominic Solanke and Daniel Sturridge as the backups to Roberto Firmino, a sale for Origi makes absolute sense for Liverpool.
The Belgian is a talented striker but in truth isn’t going to get sizeable minutes to be able to develop at the club. If Liverpool can get an offer anywhere close to £20 million or above, Klopp would’ve pulled off a superb deal for the Reds.
