A goal-scoring hero in Liverpool’s Champions League final victory over Tottenham at the end of last season, it’s safe to say Divock Origi has probably done enough to etch himself into Anfield folklore.
The Belgian has endured a rather hit-and-miss career at Anfield and has struggled to nail down a place in Jurgen Klopp’s first-team since arriving on Merseyside.
However, after some of his exploits last season, ESPN claim Liverpool will push on with contract talks for the 24-year-old this summer and that they are determined not to lose him.

After hearing the news Origi’s long-term future could still be with the club, many fans of the Merseyside club took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the matter.
Despite his goal against Spurs, many Liverpool supporters seemed rather unimpressed that Origi was set for a new deal and cautioned whether he was actually good enough for the side.
Some however felt that his knack of scoring goals in big games was more than enough reason to keep him at the club, and hoped he could continue to provide a spark from the bench.
Check out some of the divided reaction of Liverpool fans below:
Honestly I thank him for his goals, I really do , but there is no way he is the standard we need and should demand . No emotion please . We have to raise the bar every season . Too hit and miss . Good poacher but link up play , dribbling too weak . Gets pushed around too easy

As a Liverpool fan. Yes he helped out scoring 3 big goals last seaosn but overall I don’t see him as a good player for us going forward

I’m happy that he stays, but a guy that was almost at Huddersfield last season on loan, because he wasn’t able, in my opinion isn’t able now… Anyway let’s see how the things go

People seem to be missing the bigger picture when it comes to him & the front 3
We need an addition that is similar level to the front 3 so that you can play any of the 3 from 4 & standard doesn’t drop.
They’ve had effectively 2 months off in over 2 years

Origi signing a new 100k a week contract cos he shouldered one in v Everton and somehow found his balance to seal the European cup.

He deserves a new bumper deal. The guy performs in big games, holds the key to crucial goals
