Liverpool will not allow forward Divock Origi to be sold this summer, despite his contract expiring in a year’s time. 

According to ESPN, Liverpool do not want to sell Origi as they look to keep hold of the forward for next season.

His current contract is due to expire next summer, with Liverpool currently in talks with Origi over a potential new deal.

The report claims that Origi is happy to stay at Liverpool, despite his contract situation, and Liverpool want to iron out an extension before January.

Although Roberto Firmino is Liverpool’s first-choice striker under Jurgen Klopp, Origi played a pivotal role in their Champions League success this year.

The Belgian international scored two crucial goals in the semi-final win over Barcelona and then scored the second goal in Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Tottenham in the final. 

Liverpool are said to be trying to keep the core of their squad together this summer, rather than adding big-money signings to their team.
