Newcastle are desperate for striker additions following the end of Salomon Rondon’s loan deal, and Liverpool’s Divock Origi could be the ideal player to lead the line next season.

Apart from Rondon’s deal ending, Joselu looks set to leave, and Dwight Gayle is unlikely to feature for Newcastle again next season, which leaves the Magpies threadbare up top.

Origi has been something of a super-sub for Liverpool recently, with the player’s heroics helping Liverpool win the Champions League last season.

An offer of regular first team football could tempt Origi to switch to Tyneside

With the Belgian unlikely to force his way into the Reds lineup as a regular starter, Newcastle should be looking to tempt him with lure of just that.

There are conflicting reports over the player’s future on Merseyside, with the Liverpool Echo suggesting Origi is hoping for “positive” talks over a new deal, but reports in Belgium claiming he is undecided about his future plans.

If the player has more ambition than being a persistent bench warmer, a move to somewhere like St James’ Park may have appeal to him.

He is entering the final year of his current deal at Anfield, something that could see his price being slightly lower than it could otherwise be.

At 24-years-old, he is in the perfect age range for a Newcastle signing, and it would be an avenue worth exploring for whoever is in charge at the club after June.
