Origi seeking permanent move from Liverpool

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has hinted his long term future is away from the English Premier League club.

The Belgian, who is son of a former Kenya international Mike Origi, is currently on loan at top German club VfL Wolfsburg.

His deadline day move away from the Merseyside club allowed coach Jurgen Klopp to accommodate summer new arrivals Mohamed Salah, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke.

But Origi seems to have already won over the Wolfsburg support base, having scored three times in eight appearances, including an injury time equalizer against Schalke last weekend.


“I feel really well here. It’s a nice club and I’m having a good time, I can grow here. And you can never rule out anything in football,” Origi was quoted by the media in Germany.

Wolfsburg Sporting Director Olaf Rebbe and coach Martin Schimidt also seems to be reading from the same page as Origi.

“We will chat about what might be before the summer. At 22, Divock’s an extraordinary forward. He’s exhibiting his talent here right now,” Rebbe said.

“He’s (Origi) in a flow. If he can keep it up, he can score 10, even 12 goals. He’s also versatile, why shouldn’t I play him on the wing?” Schimdt added.
