Liverpool striker Divock Origi has reportedly caught the attention of Saudi Arabian club Al-Ettifaq. The Belgian forward has been with Liverpool since 2014 and has played a key role in the club’s recent success, including their Champions League triumph in 2019 and Premier League title win in 2020.

However, Origi has struggled for regular game time in recent seasons, with the arrivals of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Roberto Firmino pushing him down the pecking order. He made just nine Premier League appearances last season, scoring one goal.

Al-Ettifaq, who finished 10th in the Saudi Arabian Professional League last season, is reportedly looking to strengthen its attacking options ahead of the new season. The club’s manager, Hossam Al Badri, is said to be a fan of Origi and believes he would be a good fit for the team.

Origi’s contract with Liverpool runs until 2024, but the club may be willing to sell him if the right offer comes along. Liverpool is reportedly looking to raise funds this summer to finance new signings, and Origi could be one of the players to make way.

The transfer would be a new challenge for Origi, who has spent his entire professional career in Europe. However, Saudi Arabian football has been attracting some big-name players in recent years, including former Premier League stars Yaya Toure and Frank Lampard.

Origi would also be following in the footsteps of his international teammate, Radja Nainggolan, who played for Al-Hilal in Saudi Arabia last season. Nainggolan praised the quality of football in the country and said he enjoyed his time playing there.

For now, it remains to be seen whether Al-Ettifaq will make a concrete offer for Origi and whether the striker will be open to a move to Saudi Arabia. However, with Liverpool looking to raise funds and Al-Ettifaq in the market for a new striker, the transfer could be a possibility in the coming weeks.
