“Not good enough” – Gabby Agbonlahor claims time is up at the club for two Liverpool star forwards.
Former Aston Villa attacker Gabby Agbonlahor has made some claims that Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino aren’t good enough for Liverpool. The former EPL striker believes the duo should be sold when the summer transfer window opens.
Liverpool FC signed the Colombian winger Luis Diaz from FC Porto before the end of the January transfer window. Tottenham Hotspur were also interested in the forward and were negotiating the price when the Reds swooped in to match Porto’s asking price.
With Diaz joining the attacking department, Agbonlahor believes it is time for Jurgen Klopp to sell Minamino and Origi. The former Premier League striker claims the two players are not good enough for the club and should be replaced. He told football Insider:
“They probably are looking at life after Mo Salah and Sadio Mane. But Liverpool have probably looked at Man City who have Mahrez, Jesus, Grealish, Sterling, Foden, so why should they only have three top attackers? Why can’t they have four or five? That’s what they’ve got.
“They’ve got Mane, Salah, Jota, Firmino, Diaz, and that’s what they need. They are in a lot of competitions still. It’s going to give Klopp a chance to rotate with better quality. Origi and Minamino are not good enough. For me, their time is up at the club, goodbye. It’s a great move for Liverpool.”
Divock Origi urged to leave Liverpool
Origi has been at Anfield since 2014 but has never managed to cement his place in the starting XI.
“We just don’t know how good he is today. In his youth, Divock was a class act. But by staying with Liverpool and playing little, he hasn’t developed further. Can you blame him [for staying at Anfield]? That’s his choice.
” Liverpool must be a fantastic club to play for. But at some point, you want to play, don’t you? I think it would be a shame for Origi’s talent. The only thing I never felt about Divock was the urge –the urge to score, a striker who says ‘I scored two, now I want three.”
Reports suggest the Reds will be open to selling Origi this summer.
