Liverpool striker Divock Origi’s future has been cast into doubt after a proposed loan move to Borussia Dortmund fell through.
The 23-year old Belgian international had been keen on the move but, according to The Daily Mirror, Liverpool were only prepared to consider a permanent sale, and their valuation of Origi at £27 million was way beyond what Dortmund were prepared to pay.
Orogi, who joined Liverpool in 2014, made a total of 43 appearances for the Anfield club in 2016 – 2017, but he then fell out of favour with Jurgen Klopp, and spent last season on loan with another Bundesliga club, Wolfsburg, for whom he scored 6 goals in 34 matches.
Now, just a week before the closure of the transfer window in most European countries, he is running out of time to find himself a new club before January, and is likely facing s spell playing reserve team football. .
