Liverpool have uncovered some real gems in the player market in recent seasons. Mohamed Salah, Alisson Becker, and Andrew Robertson are just three examples of the great scouting the Reds have done.
It hasn’t all been roses at Anfield in terms of player recruitment. Regardless of whether Liverpool win the Premier League this season, manager Jurgen Klopp and the club’s sporting director Michael Edwards will need to decide on the futures of a few players.
With the summer approaching fast, these 3 Liverpool players have a lot of questions over their futures at Anfield
Divock Origi – 2 goals, 1 assist in 10 appearances
Forward Divock Origi has reinvented himself this season. He has proved capable on the left wing at times including a stellar game against Watford in February.
Origi scored the winner against Everton in what could be the most important result of the season come the end of May.
His contract expires in 2020, and with one season left to go on his current deal, Liverpool could finally sell the Belgian. Problem is, Liverpool are likely to part ways with Daniel Sturridge. Jurgen Klopp could keep Origi around as a back-up for one more season.
Danny Ings – 7 goals, 1 assist in 19 appearances
Danny Ings has spent the season on loan at Southampton were he has helped the side in their fight against relegation.
Ings has played well when healthy, but as tends to happen with the striker, he has spent time on the sidelines with injuries. Ings has missed six games this season due to a hamstring issue.
The on-loan striker is contracted to Liverpool until 2020.
Loris Karius – 6 clean sheets in 22 appearances
It is safe to say Loris Karius does not have a future at Anfield. The goalkeeper is in the first season of a two-year loan at Turkey’s Besiktas. He has not had the best of times at the club having made mistakes in goal once more.
It isn’t just problems on the pitch that Karius has endured. In March, Karius’ agent alleged Besiktas had not paid the goalkeeper in four months.
Karius could return to Liverpool in the summer, but another loan or sale seems likely. Karius’ Liverpool contract runs until 2021.
