Liverpool are reportedly listening to any offers that come in for their out of favour forward Divock Origi, with the view of reinvesting in their squad in the summer.


According to a report from the Daily Mail, Liverpool are 'inviting offers' for Origi ahead of the summer transfer window.


The main plan for Liverpool is to offload the struggling 25-year-old and then put the funds back into the squad, with some serious changes being needed in the squad, especially after their dismal Premier League campaign.


Origi has been linked to several clubs in the past, most notably AC Milan and Inter over in Italy, with the two Milan clubs wanting to add more depth to their forward line.


The Belgian has failed to contribute much this season, scoring just one goal and providing two assists in 17 appearances in all competitions, with him making just two starts in the Premier League.


Liverpool will be looking for a forward that is younger than Origi and has more ability to grow and develop into a regular first-team option, and with the Belgian having a value of 16 million according to transfermarkt, the funds generated from his sale could go a long way as to contributing to the purchase of their targets.


However, given his recent form, it will be a tough ask to find a club willing to put in a suitable offer for Origi.


Liverpool are also looking to offload other players that are on the fringes, such as Takumi Minamino and Xherdan Shaqiri.


Origi was bought by Liverpool in 2014 for 12.63 million from Lille, with the hope of him becoming a key player in Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool project, and it is safe to say that it has not worked out as first expected.
