Selling Divock Origi may harm Liverpool’s title chances this year

Selling Divock Origi may harm Liverpool’s title chances this year

Klopp must’ve been a kid in a candy shop when he returned to the training ground this summer following Liverpool’s transfer business.

Liverpool added Alisson, Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri over the summer to give the Reds one of the best starting XIs in the league, if not Europe.

Moreover, Klopp will be ecstatic that they’ve played three, won three, scored seven goals and conceded none.

With the club going in a new direction and the transfer window still open for foreign clubs, there could be a few players departing Liverpool this week.

According to the Liverpool Echo, Divock Origi is poised to leave before Friday’s transfer deadline and has apparently attracted a lot of interest, notably from Borussia Dortmund.

 The Breakdown

The Belgium international hasn’t had the best of times in Merseyside but is still a talented striker.

Moreover, for a 23-year-old, he has a lot of first-team football and did play 31 games for Wolfsburg last season where he scored six goals.

From Origi’s perspective, a move away to continue playing first-team may make sense but in terms of Liverpool’s perspective, they may be making a mistake in letting him go.

Outside of Origi, if Roberto Firmino gets injured, Liverpool only have the talented, yet injury-prone Sturridge and the unproven Dominic Solanke to pick. With Origi also able to play on either wing, he could prove to be a vital utility for Klopp this season.

The Belgian may not have the best track record but he certainly could add something to Liverpool over the season.

Liverpool fans – agree?
