Liverpool’s Champions League hero, Divock Origi, has earned himself a new long-term deal at the club.
The Belgian forward who scored twice in their semi-final encounter with Barcelona, and then came off the bench to net the vital second goal that confirmed their win over Spurs in the final on Saturday has now convinced Jurgen Klopp sufficiently to be offered a new contract at Anfield.
Origi has now confirmed that he will sit down and talk with the club in the summer, who are increasingly confident that he will be the latest young player to commit his long-term future to the club.
He finished the season as the club’s fourth highest scorer, despite barely featuring in the first part of the campaign, coming up with vital goals in both the League and Europe. Now he is set to continue a Liverpool career that began in 2014 but has been punctuated by loan spells at Lille and Wolfsburg.
