3 Reasons Why Liverpool Are Right to Keep Hold of This Attacking Ace – Opinion

Liverpool are not ready to sell Belgian striker Divock Origi this summer, as per Liverpool Echo.

The 24-year old was named in the League 1 Worst Team of the Season not so long ago, but played a key role for the Reds in the Champions League, etching his name in Liverpool folklore in the process.

Origi is a wanted man in Spain and Italy, but reports suggest that Jurgen Klopp will not let him leave this summer.

Here are three reasons why the German manager is right to keep hold of Origi:

His Age

Though not a world-beater yet, Origi has already shown a lot of promise in his few years at Liverpool. Brought in by former manager Brendan Rodgers, Origi had an impressive second half of the campaign last season and at just 24, has a bright future ahead of him.

Origi still has a lot of room for improvement and playing for Klopp will only get the best out of him.

He will be a backup more often than not, but will certainly get his chances in other cup competitions and could be crucial for Liverpool to build on their Champions League winning campaign.

His Record

Though not the first choice for Liverpool, Origi scored winners against Newcastle United and Everton along with goals against Barcelona in the semi-final and Tottenham Hotspur in the final of the Champions League last season.

He has, in previous seasons, scored against the biggest sides in England and has an impressive goal ratio, given his lack of playing time on the field.

Origi also registered the fastest speed for a Liverpool player in the Champions League last season, and undoubtedly has the quality to make him an important player in this Liverpool squad for the upcoming campaign if he stays in peak condition, unlike last season.

Lack Of Replacements

The biggest reason for Liverpool to avoid selling Origi this summer is the lack of adequate replacements for him.

At 24, Origi has already settled into life at Anfield and could make an impact when needed next season. Letting him leave will mean that Klopp will have to find another player who fits in well and can walk into the first team, all this at a price that Liverpool can afford this summer.

The current inflated market will need the Reds to overpay for any such talent which is not what they need at the moment.

They are a settled squad and making changes when not necessary might not be the right step to take for the European champions this summer.
