Liverpool to give Dominic Solanke and Divock Origi opportunities in preseason - sources
Divock Origi and Dominic Solanke will both be given opportunities to impress during Liverpool's preseason, a source has told ESPN FC.
A number of Liverpool's first-team regulars will be absent for parts of the preseason as those competing at the World Cup in Russia will be granted a break by Jurgen Klopp.
With Danny Ings wanting to leave Anfield this summer in a search for more regular game-time and Daniel Sturridge expected to depart, Origi and Solanke can both stake a claim in the striking pecking order before decisions are made on their futures.
Liverpool return to Melwood for preseason training on July 2 and play their first friendly of the summer five days later at National National League North side Chester FC.
Origi, 23, endured an indifferent spell on loan at Wolfsburg last season, scoring seven goals in 36 appearances.
Meanwhile, Liverpool and Chelsea have agreed compensation of an undisclosed amount for Solanke.
Solanke moved to Liverpool last July on a free transfer, although Chelsea were entitled to compensation due to the fact they offered him a new contract and that he was under the age of 24 at the time of his move.
ESPN FC revealed in May that the two clubs were still attempting to reach an agreement on compensation in order to avoid a tribunal. The price agreed is not yet known.
"The issue has been resolved between the clubs," a Liverpool spokesperson said. "We will have no further comment on the matter."
