Liverpool handing a new deal to their 24-year-old star would be a terrific piece of decision by Klopp



Liverpool opinion: Handing Divock Origi a new deal marks an incredible comeback

The season of miracles does not seem to have an end for Liverpool. The Reds charted another chapter to an incredible saga as they came back from the dead to defeat Barcelona.

The Reds were down and out after the first leg at the Nou Camp. Liverpool dominated most of the game but Lionel Messi’s brilliance and a bit of luck saw them finish the tie with a 3-0 lead.

However, things turned upside down at Anfield with the Reds running out 4-0 winners and reaching a second consecutive Champions League final.

It was an unforgettable night at Anfield as the Reds demolished Barcelona. They should be favourites to land the Champions League.

Jurgen Klopp has built a mega team but we were stretched on Tuesday as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino were ruled out with injuries.

Sadio Mane or Xherdan Shaqiri could have been the ones getting the goals but the madness started with Divock Origi firing in the opener in under seven minutes.

The Belgian, a peripheral figure at Anfield since injuring his ankle against Everton a few years ago, got the fourth goal too as we scripted an unlikely comeback.

Origi too scripted his own comeback into the team, and his goal against Everton will not be the only memory we have of him from this season.

Origi set for an extended stay at Anfield

The Mirror reports that Origi rejected a move to Wolves to remain at Anfield, and is now in line for a new contract.

The 24-year-old has proven to be an important player for the team even without the major minutes, as he bagged an important winner against Newcastle last week.

The Belgian did not have a great loan spell at Wolfsburg and all seemed to be lost for Origi.

He did come with a huge reputation after a great season with Lille and an impressive 2014 World Cup, but that injury against Everton hampered his growth.

However, Origi has transformed this season. He has been deployed mostly in the wide positions but has given it his all for the Reds.

The 24-year-old’s physical presence gives us a different outlet to explore and he used that well against the Catalans and against Newcastle too.

The Mirror adds that Jurgen Klopp wants to reward the Belgian for his efforts this season, and this would be an incredible turnaround for the striker.

Origi is still 24 and has his best years ahead of him and could still reach the potential he showed back in 2014.

Giving him the new deal is the least we can do after his crucial goals this season, and there could be a bright future for the Belgian at Anfield in the coming years.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Liverpool dealt a blow in hunt for promising teenage starlet as Serie A giants are unwilling to sell the player



Liverpool FC transfer news: Inter Milan unwilling to sell Sebastiano Esposito

Calciomercato claims that Inter Milan are unwilling to sell their rising starlet Sebastiano Esposito despite interest from Liverpool.

The 16-year-old was given his debut this season when he came on to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League knockout rounds.

Inter could not defeat the Bundesliga side but there is interest in the 16-year-old from Manchester City too (h/t Calciomercato).

The report adds that Inter see him as the future of the club and will only look to loan him out or let him play in the Primavera League.

The 16-year-old has already made a big name for himself with some great performances for the Italy U-17 team, and he seems set to remain with the Serie A giants for a while.

Liverpool need to build on their great season

The Reds have a great first XI but could do with more talent to strengthen the squad.

Esposito might be highly rated but it would be unlikely seeing him break into the first-team or even push the likes of Rhian Brewster and Divock Origi for game time next season.

Liverpool need to build on an impressive season and it will be interesting to see our moves in the transfer window. The Reds missed out on the Premier League title by one point but can finish the season on a high by winning the Champions League.

The report adds that the forward has a £43m release clause in his contract and there is interest from our Champions League final opponents, Tottenham.

Spurs have made contact with the player’s representatives, according to the report, while there is also interest from Borussia Dortmund.

Liverpool have a couple of up and coming strikers in the team

Roberto Firmino is the first-choice striker in the team and the Reds have a couple of young options who could do a job in place of the Brazilian.

Divock Origi was the surprise package of the season, nabbing some important goals despite not featuring a lot for the team. The Belgian bagged a brace against Barcelona recently and even scored the winners against Everton and Newcastle in the Premier League.

Rhian Brewster also seems set to play for the first-team next season, and the forward is one of the most highly-rated youngsters we have in the team.

(Photos) Liverpool touch down in Marbella for CL training camp with one surprise inclusion



Latest Liverpool news: Liverpool players reach Marbella for Champions League final training

Jurgen Klopp and the rest of the Liverpool team landed in Marbella for their Champions League final training sessions.

The Reds face Tottenham on June 1 at the Wanda Metropolitano for the final of the tournament as they look to win their sixth Champions League crown.

Liverpool visited Marbella earlier this season, and there was one major surprise joining the team in the training camp.

Naby Keita was initially ruled out for the season by Klopp after he picked up an injury against Barcelona. However, his national team manager Paul Put believes the Guinea midfielder could be back for the Champions League final (h/t Liverpool Echo).

The heroes from the win over Barcelona looked to be in the mood, with Georginio Wijnaldum pictured alongside Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Divock Origi, who scored a brace against Barcelona, could get a start in case Roberto Firmino isn’t fit for the final.

The usual suspects for Liverpool

Mohamed Salah also checked into the training camp and the Egyptian could be the difference maker for us in Madrid.

Virgil van Dijk has been excellent for us from the day he signed for us, and his leadership at the back will be one of the keys to winning the Champions League.

Our captain, Jordan Henderson, was also one of the stars in the win over Barcelona while Trent Alexander-Arnold’s crosses led to two goals against the Catalans.

Andy Robertson returned from injury to face Wolves on the final day of the season, and he should be ready to play in the final.

Alisson also pulled off some fantastic saves against Barcelona and won the Premier League Golden Glove award.
