Liverpool will not listen to loan offers for striker Divock Origi and are only interested in a permanent sale, according to reports.

Origi has been linked with an Anfield exit this summer with La Liga side Valencia and Premier Leagues Watford among those credited with interest in a loan deal as Liverpool look to cash in on, rather than developer the forward, according to Sky Sports.

The 23-year-old Belgium international spent the entirety of last season on loan in Bundesliga with Wolfsburg, where he scored seven goals in 24 starts.

Origi has spent four years on Liverpools books but has only made 51 appearances and scored 12 in that time.

He rose to prominence at the World Cup in 2014 where he played an integral part in Belgiums attack followed by a campaign where his goals helped Liverpool reach the Europa League final.

He now faces the prospect of being behind Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and perhaps even Dominic Solanke and Danny Ings in the Anfield strikers pecking order.

Reports suggest Liverpool value Origi in the region of £26million.
