Divock Origi has been promised a 'bigger role' with Liverpool next season, as talks continue over a contract extension, according to Belgian journalist Kristor Terreur.
Despite being largely a backup player for Liverpool under Klopp, Origi played a major role in Liverpool claiming their sixth European Cup in 2019, scoring twice against Barcelona in the semi-finals, before netting a late goal to seal a 2-0 win over Tottenham in the final.
There have been talks of a new contract for some time, with Jurgen Klopp keen to keep the 24-year-old, whose current contract expires next June.
According to Belgian reporter Kristof Terreur
"He has been promised a bigger role next season now [Daniel] Sturridge has left. They've offered him good money. I think he will sign a new deal for four or five years", said Terreur on the Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast.
This falls in line with previous reports suggesting that Origi will be given more opportunities
This means that all three are expected to return to pre-season training later than the rest of the squad, leaving Origi
Origi, who has been linked with Real Betis in recent weeks, was limited to just 12 Premier League
