Origi signed for the Reds in 2014 but remained at Lille on loan until 2015.
Prior to signing for Liverpool, he played in all five of Belgium's games at the 2014 Fifa World Cup during their run to the quarter-finals and scored in the 1-0 win over Russia.
Origi's Liverpool legacy
Since his arrival, he has largely been used as a squad player - having only started two league games over the past two seasons. He also spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Wolfsburg.
Despite this, Origi has enjoyed a number of iconic moments at Liverpool during his career on Merseyside, scoring twice against Barcelona during the famous Champions League semi-final comeback at Anfield in 2019.
He also came off the bench to make it 2-0 in that year's Champions League final. A year before that, he bagged the winner in the Merseyside derby against Everton.
The forward is a popular figure at the club, with the Reds' final Premier League game against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday looking like it will be his Anfield farewell.
Origi could still end the season as a quadruple winner. Liverpool have already won the Carabao Cup and FA Cup, but Jurgen Klopp's side will be keen add the Premier League and Champions League to their trophy cabinet.
Liverpool currently sit one point behind league leaders Manchester City ahead of the final day of the season. The Reds will then face off against Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 28.
