Do Liverpool need Origi?
Origi, 26 has been out of favour for a while. The player made just nine appearances in the Premier League last season. Despite Mane and Firmino’s dip in form, the player was not trusted by Klopp. Hence, one could understand if the player wants to Move. Origi is yet to hit prime. He might be able to revive his career at Wolves.

Origi has been on the end of some memorable Liverpool moments. He was on the end of Trent Alexander Arnold’s corner which helped Liverpool defeat Barca. The club went on to win their sixth Champions League that campaign. The player scored in the final too.
Liverpool might need the player in January. Both Salah and Mane are set to miss out due to international duty. Hence, Klopp might keep the player thinking about that situation.
The club still could let Origi go. However, Liverpool in the past have shown that they would not be on the wrong side of a deal. The club have managed to get a hefty fee for out of favour player in the past. Hence, if Wolves want Origi, they might need to match Liverpool’s valuation.
