Origi open to permanent Wolfsburg move from Liverpool

The Belgium international admits he may be willing to stay in Germany, with the club attempting to secure him on a permanent deal

Divock Origi has admitted that he is open to a permanent transfer from Liverpool to Wolfsburg.

The Belgium international moved to the Bundesliga on an initial loan deal in the summer and has since scored four goals for the club in 15 games.

Sporting director Olaf Rebbe admitted in November that "it would be negligent" for Wolfsburg not to attempt to acquire the 22-year-old permanently.

And Origi, who scored 21 goals in 77 appearances for the Reds, says he may be willing to stay in Germany.

"I take that as a compliment that the club rates me," Origi told reporters about Wolfsburg's attempts to negotiate a permanent deal. "Several factors play a role. I am someone who is enjoying the moment.

"I think everything's possible. I focus on the here and now. I have a good relationship with Liverpool but feel really well here at Wolfsburg. We'll sit down at the end of the season, and talk we'll see what's next.

"Right now, I am here for another six months, and I am open for everything."

Wolfsburg are currently 12th in the Bundesliga, though they have won just three of their 12 matches thus far this season.
