Graeme Souness targets Divock Origi after the Liverpool striker’s parade against Aston Villa

Graeme Souness said that Liverpool could “live to regret” by not adding another striker with Divock Origi struggling to reach the rank.

The words of the former Liverpool man came after the Belgian played in the Reds’ 2-0 victory over Aston Villa.

Jurgen Klopp’s top three recover with Origi, often his first backup in case one of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino or Sadio Mane is unavailable.

But Souness hit Origi and highlighted the drop off that occurs when he comes to the side.

A credible alternative to attacking their top three is a potential addition they will consider this summer having already lost Timo Werner.

And Souness says he needs better attacking options.

“I have been in this situation. Lower that intensity by one or two percent. Liverpool, you can see what they said before the game, let’s try to raise the rhythm, “he told Sky Sports.

“There is that building site that is missing in the last third. I think Firmino is missing. Liverpool are world champions, Champions League winner and Premier League champion, I am disappointed that they have not bought another striker.

“When you don’t play one of these three, with Origi, you get a decent drop in quality. I think they could live to regret it.

“I hope I’m wrong, I hope they end up buying someone for when those three don’t play. Firmino connects everything. From back to front, it seems to connect everything. “

In the previous two seasons Mane, Salah and Firmino have combined for 156 goals and 55 assists.

Origi has only achieved 12 goals in the past two years, although some of these have been crucial.
