Liverpool could drop price for striker sale

Liverpool may drop their £20m asking price for Divock Origi by £5m. The Reds are said to be desperate to flog the misfiring Belgian this summer after scoring just one goal in 17 appearances last season, with only nine appearances in the Premier League.
The 26-year-old enjoyed his role as a super-sub for Klopp during the 2018-19 season, scoring a crucial winner in the Merseyside derby and bagging a double against Barcelona in the Champions League.

The striker has struggled to make an impression since then and has fallen down the pecking order behind Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota. There has been interest in Origi from West Ham, Wolves and Napoli

Some interested parties have found his price tag somewhat steep, however, a straight transfer for £15m or a loan deal with an option remains a possibility.

David Moyes is desperate to sign a striker with just eleven days before the start of the Premier League season.

  1. Sean your final paragraph should read:

    ‘David Moyes is desperate to sign a striker with just eleven days before the start of the Premier League season. HOWEVER, THE BOARD ARE REFUSING TO BACK HIM’

  2. Sorry we are signing players like Zouma (who Everton did not fancy on a pern deal) and Origi (who Liverpool do not fancy) players who we are supposed to be competing with do not want. I am sorry but this is dire stuff and if this is Moyes’s idea of bringing in players to move us to the next level, we are in big trouble. It is a shambles, these are average players, yes bring them in on loan if needed to fill a gap but do not bring them in on big fee. Areola was a good deal but paying 25m for Zouma and 15m for Origi shows a complete lack of planning. The blame for the disaster that has been this transfer window will come out sooner or later.
