Since the beginning of the season, reports have claimed that Liverpool are expecting a summer clear out of fringe players to provide funds for a squad overhaul.  

One name that is consistently listed to be leaving Anfield in the summer is Divock Origi. 

The Belgian striker has been linked with several clubs including Real Sociedad, Wolverhampton, Newcastle, Aston Villa and now Borussia Dortmund

This should not be a shock to anyone, as Liverpool were actively shopping him and doing everything in their power to find a buyer for the striker in January. Unfortunately for Michael Edwards, the club were unable to find anyone willing to meet their £20 million asking price.

Football Insider claims that the Merseyside club have significantly lowered their demands for any transfer involving Origi to a measly £12 million. 

Origi-liverpool

The Belgian has become somewhat of a cult hero for The Reds since joining in 2014. He was apart of Liverpool's amazing comeback against Barcelona, was on the receiving end of a Valentine's Day kiss from a supporter and scored the goal that saw Liverpool named Champions of Europe for the sixth time. 

This season, the former Lille man has featured in just nine Premier League games, playing less than 200 league minutes. Origi has made 17 total appearances, scoring one goal and adding two assists. 

In a season that looks to be make or break for Origi's Liverpool career, the Belgian has failed to make the match day squad on five separate occasions. 

Will Divock Origi be a Liverpool player next season or will he be sold in the summer?
