It’s hard to put a finger on exactly why Belgian forward Divock Origi doesn’t get a look in at Liverpool, after such a promising start to his career, and his billing as a ‘hit prospect’, but the general consensus tend to settle on the fact that he’s rubbish.
A relatively successful loan spell at German club Wolfsburg last season wasn’t enough to earn Origi a place in the current Liverpool squad, and he now spends his time playing for the u23s.
Origi is at a point in his career now where some serious decisions need to be made. He could spend the next few years at Anfield vying for a spot on the bench, feeding on scraps in a game, living in the periphery, or he could find a new club and establish himself as a first-team player.
With so much talent coming through the Liverpool ranks, the future is looking bleaker by the day for the Belgian forward who now has numerous youth prospects to compete with.
Of those, these two players look most likely to surpass his “achievements” in the team…
No hot prospect list is complete without Liverpool striker Rhian Brewster.
The English forward was one of the Young Lions who secured the u17 World Cup for his country back in 2017, collecting himself the Golden Boot along the way, and earning the title of one of the nation’s brightest talents.
His first-team debut was delayed due to ankle operation in January this year, and his return date is unknown. However, with news recently being released by TalkSport that the player is back running in training, it’s only a matter of time before he’s back in the squad and vying for a place in the first-team come the second half of the season.
Youngster Bobby Duncan is another player who looks to have a bright future ahead of him at the club.
According to the Mirror, who have dubbed him “Liverpool’s latest wonderkid”, the 17-year-old forward has been recently invited to train with the first-team at Melwood. Another honour added to a long list of achievements, including a number of appearances for England at u15, u16, and u17 level.
He’s performing excellently in the youth league so far this year, with six goals and three assists to his name in eight games.
Duncan is definitely one to keep an eye for in coming years…
