Belgium international striker Divock Origi has snaked his way back into Jurgen Klopp’s frontline after his sensational strike that helped Reds defeat City rivals Everton last year.
Origi has been the meat of transfer talks last year and this month after seeing regular games hard to come by at Anfield.
Talks about Origi’s exit have been dramatic and had neared conclusion when Wolverhampton submitted a 22 million pounds bid for the player, including add-ons.
But the striker turned his back on the deal and would later remain at Anfield for the rest of first half of this campaign.
Klopp will not be shipping Origi out this month as reports had earlier suggested. Origi had had offers from Premier League clubs ready to sign him and willing to offer him regular starts.
Strings of Premier League clubs the likes of Fulham, West Ham and Wolves had started a race to sign the player this month, since the January window was opened.
But Klopp has decided over offloading the player despite approving the player’s exit in the summer of last year.
Liverpool sold Dominic Solanke to Bournemouth this month, and Klopp is reluctant to release another striker as he continues to eye his first silverware this season since taking the reins of the club three years ago.
