In retrospect, it's clear that Divock Origi's Liverpool career probably peaked at the end of the 2018/2019 season.
The Belgian striker scored key goals against Barcelona and Spurs during the club's Champions League run, earning him a place in Anfield folklore.
However, he has since struggled. It's clear Jurgen Klopp can't depend on Origi as a dependable backup for his first choice front three, with the player scoring four Premier League goals since the start of last season.
As it turns out, the form he showed in the first half of 2019 may have secured his future at the club, with one striker saying the former Lille man's Champions League exploits scuppering his move to Liverpool.
As quoted by Sport1, German striker Max Kruse said that he had all but agreed a deal to join the Merseysiders in the summer of 2019 from Werder Bremen on a free transfer. It would ultimately fall apart after they decided to persist with Origi for the following season.
Of course, I would have done that (move to Liverpool). In my opinion, it was relatively fixed. [Liverpool] actually wanted to give up two strikers.
