Liverpool forward to be rewarded

8th April 2019, 11:45 by Bobbie Jackson

Divock Origi is set to be rewarded with a new contract by Liverpool, despite his minor role this term, according to reports.

The 23-year-old has been unable to tie down a regular spot since joining the Premier League side from Lille for £10million in the summer of 2014.

He was loaned back to the French outfit and has also spent time on loan with Wolfsburg, while he was understood to be on the verge of a permanent exit to Wolves last summer.

But Jurgen Klopp opted to keep hold of the Belgium international and he has repaid that faith with some important performances from the bench.

Origi has featured just 10 times in the Premier League, seven from the bench, and he scored a memorable injury-time winner in the Merseyside derby with Everton.

Reports claim Klopp has been impressed with his attitude and is ready to hand over a new deal to ensure he remains part of the set up at Anfield.
