I really don't get the desire to undervalue Origi, some of the comments are ludicrous, show me another player with a PL winner and ECL winners league medal that has represented their national team on more than 20 occasions that you could buy for 20 million or less?

Hell we got crica 20 for solanke and brewster who barely kicked a ball at any senior level!

C.V. yes blah blah but it does not diminish the value of a player that much. Im glad we are not a pushover and selling players on the cheap we should and rightfully do ask for value and long may it continue if we sell or not at least clubs will know not to bother with derisory offers.

Overall the lack of respect shown to origi on here is shocking from "fans"

Agree20 Disagree0

I think £10M would be a fair price for Origi now. Yes he has won loads with us and he has contributed but he hasn't played hardly at all in so long that Benteke has now overtaken him in the pecking order for Belgium.

Do you think either Brewster or Solanke were worth £20M? I don't anyway and I remember how happy with those prices when these deals were agreed- not everyone wanted them to go (Brewster was very highly rated) but they both wanted to go to play matches and those prices were very good for Liverpool.

03 Sep 2021 13:55:27
I agree, I don't necessarily think his medals increase his value at all but he's a solid player and £20m doesn't get you much these days!

Think it'd be a shame to get less than £10m for him.

03 Sep 2021 14:11:51
I would argue that Benteke has improved more recently and correct Divock hasn't played much but that does not change the the player or his experience so why de value him?

Who else can you buy for 10 million of the same experience?

03 Sep 2021 14:15:42
Origi needs to leave for the sake of his own career. its just not worked out for him at LFC.

03 Sep 2021 14:53:18
He is 24. Can score 10-15 goals for any team a season and is injury free.
Those stats are def worthy of 20 million. Considering how much money westham spent on haller, chelsea on lukaku and the list for striker goes on, Origi is well worth 20 million.

The player does not want to go and the club are not getting the offer they need for him so it suits both parties and he stays. I don't get what the noise is about.
He stays and will play as and when needed. Not many new signings would have been content with that.
And also he is probably the longest serving guy on our books after hendo if am nor wrong.

03 Sep 2021 14:54:01
I’m not a business man but surely we are now going to lose money on him by not selling him. I say this as he in his last year of his contract so if he goes on a free next year not only is that not receiving a fee for him but it’s costing the club a weekly wage to keep him here for the next 12 months. So by not selling him for say 10 mill it’ll actually cost us 6 mill to keep him here.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of any offers for him at the moment.}

03 Sep 2021 15:06:52
I wonder if the incredible deals that we've done selling players like Solanke, Brewster, Ibe, Smith, Benteke, even Coutinho and back to Joe Allen, means that buying clubs are now so ultra-cautious when dealing with us and so concerned about being the next club to get their pants pulled down by Michael Edwards, that it has started to impact what clubs are willing to pay for our players to the extent that we are now struggling to get a fair price for some of the players we are looking to sell.

I agree to an extent with the OP on this. If you consider Dan James going for something like £30m, Ben White for £50m, even our own Harry Wilson for £12m (which I know kind of goes against the main point of my post), then I think I would argue that Origi should be more like £20m than £10m, and we should have got more than we did for Shaqiri.

Back when we won the Champions League and Origi scored in the final and the semi, as well as getting a few in the league towards the end of that season, I think we'd easily have got over £30m for him.

03 Sep 2021 15:13:12
Man Utd's Anderson also had a CL and PL medal, doesn't mean he was a good player. There is definitely a good player in Origi but he has hardly played after the CL winning season and whenever he has, he has more often than not failed to impress.

We should have let him go for 10-15m for his sake and it would helped us with reducing our wage bill as well.

03 Sep 2021 15:15:56
Origi is 26 and his best ever campaign was worth 11 goals. He's never hit double figures in the league. I love him but he's never worth £20m.

03 Sep 2021 16:17:33
The worst thing about Divock is that he doesn't use his assets at all. He's quick, powerful, is a good finisher with either foot. He has it all yet cannot apply any of it. It is this that really gets on our pips.

03 Sep 2021 16:49:44
Origi's value is not going to be set by anyone of us here; it's entirely a matter between the club and any potential buyer who enquires. Yes, in our endless wisdom we can estimate approximately while comparing him with other players who have been recently sold, but even that is just a guess at best.

What I am amazed at is the attitude of many of the posters on here for the lack of appreciation they have for whatever little he may have done while at the club. And the way people skew their arguments while trying to trash him only impresses those who are equally fickle. When he was scoring those goals against Everton, Barcelona and Tottenham (UCL) and the others, he was "Big Div". Today, he's relegated to a has been of no value because "his average" is not as high as Salah's, and "Sturridge " would probably do a better job, even now. Has he been given enough chances? Has he performed when given the chances? Which comes first, the chicken or the egg? The guy is a backup forward. He's not the star striker he and Brendan Rodgers hoped he'd be. He knows it, we know it and the world knows it too. And he seems to be okay with it. Why can't he be respected for what he is and what he's done for the team (which is a hell of a lot given his wages when you compare them with others at the club)?

03 Sep 2021 17:35:38
I agree ArAy pretty much everything you say, but if he is on the last year of his contract as some suggest then he needed to be sold. For me, it doesn't make sense to let players leave on a free. £10 million would have been better than nothing.

Saying all that, he is here now and needs to be supported and not mocked and abused. He will be required at some stage and I hope he pops up with some great goals.

{Ed014's Note - June 2022 it expires.

03 Sep 2021 18:03:08
He’s not worth £20m in today’s market, that’s why despite interest in him nobody would pay that.
Doesn’t matter what he’s won as part of the team, it doesn’t make him a better or more valuable player.

03 Sep 2021 18:25:43
Oh but I'm not against selling him, Irish Rover. Klopp and team management have to decide if he is productive enough to be kept or not, and whether he is worth holding on to for this year and foregoing that 10 million. If the club had bought a forward in this last window, I would have been fine with letting him go. It just irks me that many write as if he's stealing a wage and he's done nothing for the club, ever. There are others at the club who deserve that treatment far more than Origi ever did.

03 Sep 2021 18:51:12
Agree with you ArAy- spot on. He doesn't kick up any dust and tries when he gets the chances.

03 Sep 2021 19:27:47
Origi's contract runs until 2024. He renewed in 2019 @JK23

td_red anderson last played in the PL in 2013 nearly a decade a go, prices have somewhat changed since then and are not comparable as a result.

11 goals in a season MK how many games did he play 90 minutes in?

03 Sep 2021 19:40:25
Did some one just say he’s a solid player!
He goes down easier brasser! For such a big bloke he’s as soft as they come! We all love divo but he should of been flogged long ago!
He should be playing and for him should move on!

03 Sep 2021 20:01:51
Nobody denies that Jay its purely the desire from some to totally undervalue and disrespect the player.

03 Sep 2021 20:24:34
Jkh1983 cheers mate. I thought he was in his last year.

{Ed014's Note - yes apologies mate, I went by transfermrket which is always normally spot on, double checked and like jkh said it’s 2024.

03 Sep 2021 20:35:15
Jkh : I don’t agree the disrespect of the lad he seems a top lad too I don’t like to see any abuse of him! But when u have a goal keeper out scoring a forward u know it’s time to go! I’d love him to make most eat their words but somehow doubt they will! Maybe one day origi will find his inner clubberlang and show what a unit he is on the pitch!

03 Sep 2021 20:49:34
Jay In fairness I think our goalkeeper out scored most of our midfield as well 🤣.

03 Sep 2021 20:54:17
Jkh1983, in the 16/ 17 season he scored 11 goals. 43 appearances, 2081 minutes, 21 starts. 3 of his goals were against lower league teams in the EFL cup.

Don't get me wrong, that was a good season for him considering his time on the pitch. He also got 10 in 34 appearances in the 15/ 16 season.

I think it's a little bit worrying though that he never kicked on after 21 goals in his first 2 seasons. He's never got close to those numbers in terms of goals or appearances since.

You could make the argument that in a team where he plays more regularly he'll score more, but there are variables to consider there. In a lesser team where he would start, he's also likely to be playing with less creative players.

As I say, I love Origi and I wouldn't have pushed him out the door in Klopp's position because his attitude is seemingly very good and it's almost worth keeping him just to play Everton and the Champions League Semi's! But nobody will pay £20m for Origi when for not a lot more, teams are getting players like Danny Ings.

I really hope Origi can rediscover his form of 4 years ago though. He'd be a serious asset if he started bagging 10 goals a season again. If nothing else it might help us string a domestic cup run together.

03 Sep 2021 21:56:52
Not everyone who has said £10M is their opinion of a fair price has insulted or disrespected Origi. MK Scouser has put up some numbers there as well in terms of goals and appearances.

Some of us can value Origi at £10M without bashing him.

I personally don't see how we could get anything close to £20M from him barely kicking a ball last season and then when he has played he has obviously been incredibly rusty - players can't be expected to perform when they are hardly ever used.

This, imo, will bring the players value down. Klopp barely used him so why would another club expect him to be valued highly then?

03 Sep 2021 22:33:37
@ArAy1969, nobody in this thread trashed Origi before you posted - looks like you didn't actually read the thread you just assumed people were trashing him.

This thread was discussing our opinions on how much we thought Origi would be worth if he was being sold this summer. No "Origi out" or "he is terrible" type comments.

03 Sep 2021 23:01:02
You are only worth what someone is willing to pay for you hence, it really doesn’t matter what LFC thinks Origi is worth. If both parties cannot meet in middle then, no deal. Also remember, Origi HAS a say in where he goes and if he is not willing to go somewhere then, he can’t be forced to do so. Klopp will NEVER do that to a player he likes as an individual and is well respected in the DR by all accounts.

04 Sep 2021 03:52:03
A better player in Shaqiri has 7 league titles.2 Champions Leagues. And 9 cups. He’s played almost 100 times for his country scoring 26. He has a world cup hattrick on his CV. We got £9.5m for him. I’d bite your hand if for the same fee for Origi. What a players won as part of a team isn’t a good way to decide a players value. Hindsight, summer 2018 was a good time to sell when his stock was high. Think we’ve made the same mistake with Phillips.

04 Sep 2021 05:34:56
This is long thread but i will write it again. The player seemed not wanting to go and the club did not get the money they wanted.
That is why the transfer didn't happen and it suits both parties.
We don't have money and wanted to only cash in on divvy for signing a new player and what do you think 10 million would have bought?
You know chelsea got close to 40 mill for tammy abraham.
Why undervalue our own? Especially when they are content and not pushing for a move? Would 10 million be enough to fund any move?
Ya all would have lost your mind if we sold divvy for 10 and failed to bring anyone in which would have been the case as 10 million is nothing.

04 Sep 2021 06:26:35
Hands up if you’ve ever played in a Champions League Final.

Hands up if you’ve ever scored a goal in a Champions League Final.

Anybody with their hand up can you please provide a critique of Origi’s ability.

04 Sep 2021 07:31:03
WDW, radio silence 🤭🤭.

04 Sep 2021 08:10:50
Wdw I don’t think anyone on here has actually played for, managed or owned Liverpool so I’m guessing every topic is now off the agenda with regards to discussion on that basis 🤷🏻‍♂️.

04 Sep 2021 08:54:12
He's referring to the fact that folks slate Origi as if they are knowledgeable experts who know far better.
The majority of those slating him have probably never played football apart from console games.
Everyone is entitled to an opinion, but many should simply be ignored as they don't know what they're talking about.

04 Sep 2021 09:08:00
Flash from this thread mate I’ve not seen anyone slating Origi. Just giving an opinion.
