Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has no intention of selling Divock Origi during the January transfer window.
Origi has made just four starts and six substitute appearances this season, a result of remaining behind other players in the pecking order and injury.
With less than six months remaining on his contract, it has been claimed that the Belgium international is attracting widespread interest in his signature.
However, Klopp does not envisage parting ways with the attacker at the midway point of the campaign, regardless of the possibility of Origi departing on a free transfer in the summer.
Speaking to the club’s official website, Klopp said: “Div is still injured and still in recovery. So he cannot help us in this moment but I don’t see any kind of scenario – pretty much everything can happen in life – but from this moment I would say he will be here.
“And hopefully fit soon because we actually could use him quite well now.”
A number of teams in the Premier League and Serie A are said to be monitoring the situation.
