Liverpool are open to offers for the Belgian this summer, who struggled on loan at Wolfsburg this past season, not impressing in the pre-season friendlies either.
Given the form Origi was in Bundesliga last term, it is interesting to see Valencia being ready to stump up £27million for the striker’s signature. Nevertheless, if the Spanish club agrees to pay the amount, it would be a fantastic deal done by our club, with special credit to our Sporting Director Mike Edwards.
Mike Edwards was promoted to the Sporting Director’s role at our club in November 2016 and he has played a brilliant role behind the scenes in getting our transfers done. He has avoided the limelight, although his recent success has seen many fans sing his praises.
Since the rumours broke out of Valencia willing to match our club’s valuation for Origi, here is how our fans reacted on Twitter, with some wanting for an Edwards’s statue outside Anfield.

So Liverpool want a combined £47M for Danny Ings and Divock Origi. If we actually get that kind of money for those players then Mike Edwards deserves a statue outside Anfield because that’s Nabil Fekir essentially paid for. #lfc
