Liverpool forward Divock Origi is hopeful new contract discussions will be “positive” regarding a long-term stay at Anfield. The 24-year-old Belgian saw his gametime limited with the Reds last season with Roberto Firmino the first–choice central striker.
However, Origi impressed when given a chance and scored a number of significant goals in the campaign. He scored the last-gasp winner in the Merseyside derby in December before firing in a brace in their sensational Champions League comeback win against Barcelona.
He then scored the second goal which settled the Champions League final against Tottenham on Saturday. While he is unlikely to become a first-choice player, Origi does look like he will be offered a new deal and appears to be a superb back-up option.

Origi said: “The next few weeks we’ll have to sit down and see what the future holds. “For now I just want to focus on these last few games [with Belgium] and then see after that. “I want to speak to the club and my people internally before going public but hopefully the talks between me, the club and my people will be positive.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
