Jurgen Klopp is reportedly in talks with Origi regarding his contract extension at Liverpool which is set to expire at the end of next season.

The 24-year-old Belgian forward has scored eight goals and provided two assists in 22 appearances for the club which includes key goals scored against Barcelona and Tottenham in the Champions League.

Klopp has had a conversation with Origi to convince him to pen down a new five-year deal at the Anfield, according to Football Insider.

Origi’s current deal will expire in the next summer, so with a view of retaining him to play an important role and to ensure that they don’t lose on a significant transfer fee as he becomes a free agent, Liverpool wants him to sign a new deal.

However, Origi would want assurance of first-team minutes, before he signs the contract, given the fierce competition for a place in the playing eleven at Merseyside club.

The trio of Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané are likely to miss the pre-season of the Premier League due to their international commitments with their countries.

The absence of the star-players would be a fantastic opportunity for Origi to claim first team minutes and consolidate his position in the playing eleven.

But it has to be seen whether or not Klopp offers important first team minutes to Origi or will he continue with his preferred attacking lineup of Salah, Mane and Firmino.
