Divock Origi will be remembered fondly by Liverpool fans for his contributions to the winning of the Champions League, with the forward scoring key goals against Barcelona and then Tottenham as the Reds went on to lift their sixth European Cup.

Since then, though, the player appears to have taken a step back. He’s fallen down the pecking order—appearing to be seventh choice at the moment—found minutes harder to come by, and made less of an impact any time he does make an appearance.

It’s led to speculation the now 26-year-old Belgian is likely to depart the club this summer, and with two weeks left to run in the summer transfer window, The Telegraph claim their are now three potential landing places for the striker in the Premier League.

West Ham and Wolves, both previously linked, are said to retain interest in Origi. There is also the addition of Crystal Palace to the list of suitors, with Patrick Vieira’s relegation-threatened Eagles said to be looking to strengthen their attacking options.

Past reports have claimed that Liverpool are holding out in the hopes of a £15M fee for the player who they signed from Lille in a £10M deal back in 2014. To date, Origi has made 157 total appearances and scored 35 goals with the Reds.
