Newcastle United is in amongst a host of English and European sides interested in Liverpool striker Divock Origi.
What’s the story?
It is reported that in addition to Spanish side Real Sociedad, Aston Villa and Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the domestic sides keen on the services of 25-year-old.
Having fallen down the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp, it seems that Newcastle are among a number of clubs alerted to his potential availability in the summer transfer window.
The £10 million 2014 signing is also noted in the report as only being open to a move elsewhere if he would be guaranteed to be a crucial starter for the club.
Origi has 19 goals in 100 appearances for the Reds, albeit mostly from the bench or as a rotational option.
Believed to be available for just £17 million and with plenty of years left ahead of him in his career, Origi’s proven record at club and European level could make him a shrewd acquisition.
