Latest Liverpool news: Divock Origi to be handed new contract by Liverpool
The Belgian was one of the heroes in the 4-0 hammering of Barcelona where he scored the first and fourth goals.
The 24-year-old’s season has been lit up with important goals such as the winners against Everton and Newcastle United.
The report claims that Jurgen Klopp wants to reward the Belgian’s efforts from recent weeks and talks will be held in the summer.
Origi’s form in has proved and the German believes that the striker is back to his best, which was the case in 2016 before an injury curtailed his campaign, according to the Mirror.
Origi remains at Liverpool to fight it out
The report adds that Origi rejected a move to Wolverhampton Wanderers in January and that move seems to have worked a treat.
The former Lille striker has a year left on his current deal and the new contract will be highly incentivised, according to the report.
Origi certainly has come up big for us this season, and a contract extension would not be a bad move for either club.
The Belgian still needs to improve his game but he seems to be getting better with each game this season.
