Divock Origi is one of a few players on the outside looking in at Anfield and he’s not short of offers to leave the club before Thursday’s transfer deadline.

Bundesliga clubs Bayer Leverkusen, Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg are all interested in signing the striker this summer as he looks to secure a move which guarantees him first-team minutes ahead of next summer’s World Cup.

Origi has scored 21 goals in 77 career appearances for Liverpool but has never been able to establish himself as a regular in the side and finds himself behind the likes of Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke in the pecking order at Anfield.

Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Marseille are all interested in signing the Belgian, while Liverpool have also offered him to Monaco on a season-long loan as part of a deal which sees Thomas Lemar join the Reds.
