The report suggested that the 26-year-old has gathered interest from a host of clubs across Europe and could be one of a number of sales this summer.

Who else are Liverpool looking to offload this summer? 

Alongside Origi, the report from Goal states that Marko Grujic and Harry Wilson will be offloaded if an offer comes in.

The trio have a combined 175 Liverpool appearances between them according to Transfermarkt, with most of those coming from the Belgian (157).

Grujic was Jurgen Klopp’s first signing for the Reds, although he has only made 16 appearances in five years for the German manager. The Serbian spent the 2020/21 campaign on loan at FC Porto where he helped the Portuguese side get to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Wilson is a product of the Liverpool academy but has failed to work his way into Klopp’s plans, making just two appearances for the club. Still, the Wales international had a successful loan stint at Cardiff City where he recorded 11 league assists

Are Liverpool right to sell Origi, Wilson and Grujic?

It is difficult to see how any of Origi, Wilson or Grujic remain at Liverpool as, crucially, all of them still hold some value which could raise funds for other targets this summer. 

According to Transfermarkt, Origi is valued at £14.4m, Wilson at £15.3m and Grujic at £13.5m, which would amount to £43.2m that could be reinvested back into the squad.

The report from Goal also states that Harvey Elliott will get the chance to prove himself during pre-season after his spell at Blackburn Rovers in the Championship earned the 18-year-old a nomination for Young Player of the Season at the EFL Awards.

The teenager has recorded 18 goal contributions in 41 games in England’s second division, including 11 assists which ranks him joint-third of any Championship player.
