Origi is set to partner Mario Gomez up front for Wolfsburg, and the Reds attacker seems very excited about his new challenge in Germany.

Over the weekend Origi took to social media to discuss his move to Wolfsburg. He wrote “excited to join Wolfsburg and to get the opportunity to play in one of the best leagues in the world.”

On Monday, Bild have looked into the finances behind the Origi deal.

It’s been revealed that Origi will get more expensive for Wolfsburg the less he plays.

According to Bild, Wolfsburg have agreed to pay Liverpool a basic loan fee of €3 million. But that fee could increase by 20 percent if Origi only were to play 80 percent of the matches possible.

It’s believed the fee could be as high as €6.5 million.

Bild also reported that Liverpool have the chance to recall Origi in January.

It was also claimed that 20 clubs tried to sign Origi in the summer.
