According to Football Insider, Liverpool are confident that Divock Origi will sign a new five-year contract with the club.
Origi’s future has been the subject of recent speculation with Real Betis said to be interested in a swoop for the Belgium international.
However, according to Football Insider, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp recently held talks with the attacker on holiday and a new deal is now in the offing.
Origi was far from first choice at Anfield last season due to the presence of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane in the final third of the field.
The 24-year-old still managed eight goals in 22 appearances for the Reds during the 2018-19 campaign, though, including a brace against Barcelona in the semi-finals of the Champions League and late goal against Tottenham Hotspur in the final.

The Liverpool fans have been on social media offering their views on the latest news and many are very pleased indeed:
Good news. Really turned his career around. Origi is not the best at work rate and the press but he sure can finish and has the best positioning awareness I’ve seen for a long time. Super poacher. Brewster as our only option up top wouldn’t be fair on him developing. Pressure etc

Deserves his new contract. Every bit of it. Easy to see he is a vital part of the “team” and that isn’t always the first 11. No problem paying Andy Carroll the money and did nothing like Origi has done in terms of important goals and team player. Delighted.
