Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United have shown an inclination towards signing Liverpool forward Divock Origi but his price tag is causing a few problems, according to The Mirror.
The report claims: “The Reds will be desperate to flog the misfiring Belgian this summer after scoring just one goal in 17 appearances last season, with only nine appearances in the Premier League.
“There has been interest in Origi from Wolves and Napoli, and according to The Athletic, Origi will be allowed to depart on a permanent transfer if Liverpool’s £20m asking price is met.
“Some interested parties have found his price tag somewhat steep, however, and a loan deal remains a possibility.”
Will Divock Origi end up leaving Liverpool in the summer?
The Belgian has failed to cement a regular spot in the starting line-up at Anfield and since his contract is expiring next summer, Jurgen Klopp is not planning to hold onto him any longer.
As per TransferMarkt, Origi is valued at £10.8 million which is why the £20 million price tag might seem a bit unfair to the interested parties. More so, since he will become a free agent next summer.

Liverpool have already lost Wijnaldum as a free agent and they will want is for another first-team player to walk out without them earning even a penny.
Ideally, both West Ham and Wolves have the financial capability to pay £20 million but they understand Liverpool have overpriced Divock Origi which is why they are going to bargain heavily in the next few weeks.
Also, Divock Origi scored only one goal in 17 matches last season across all competitions so the two suitors are bound to demand a hefty discount.
