Liverpool are willing to let Divock Origi leave on loan in January following the return of Daniel Sturridge, according to reports in Belgium.

Origi has struggled since signing for Liverpool for £10million in 2014, being named in Ligue 1's worst team of the season for his loan spell at Lille last campaign, and making just two appearances so far under Brendan Rodgers.

The return of Sturridge leaves Liverpool with three recognized strikers alongside Christian Benteke and Danny Ings, while the likes of Roberto Firmino are capable of filling in in a forward role.

This could leave Origi struggling for game time as he develops at Anfield, and Belgium daily newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws reports that the club are open to allowing the 20-year-old to leave on loan when the January transfer window opens.

The Reds rejected overtures from Fenerbahce in the summer with regards to the Belgium international, but with Origi unlikely to feature much this season outside of the Europa League, Rodgers could look to offer the youngster more playing time elsewhere.
