However, the arrival of Diogo Jota in 2020 and Diaz this year have seemingly pushed Origi further down the pecking order. The club could let him leave this summer.

In a conversation with Football Insider, McLeish said;

“He came back in last season, scored a few important goals for Liverpool and got some big praise from the manager.

“But he’s in a really important part of his career now, and he’ll be wanting to move on.”

“However, they’ve brought Diaz in, and he’s just fit in seamlessly. That was the final nail in the coffin for Origi, you can understand why he wants to go. It’s a wonderful piece of recruitment. That’s the way Liverpool work.”

“You’d think that they’d have someone in place for when Origi leaves. They’ll have their eyes on the ball; there’s no doubt about it.”
