Whilst Liverpool are attempting to keep Philippe Coutinho at the club, another attacking player could be leaving before Thursday's transfer deadline, in Divock Origi.
The 22-year-old forward, snapped up from Lille in 2014 having impressed with Belgium at the World Cup in Brazil, arrived with great promise, but has mostly been on the fringes of the Liverpool side.
Origi has scored 21 goals in 77 games for Liverpool, but has struggled to nail down a regular starting role under Jurgen Klopp, with the likes of Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and new signing Dominic Solanke ahead of him in the pecking order.
With less than 48 hours to go until the transfer deadline, Origi could now be on the move, with The Chronicle reporting that Newcastle United are interested in signing him.
The Magpies may have landed Joselu to lead the line this summer, but with questions marks over the future of Dwight Gayle, Origi has emerged as a possible late window target for Rafael Benitez.
Whether it's on loan or permanent, Newcastle may well view Origi as an upgrade in attack, and fans have been taking to Twitter to have their say on the rumours over the last 24 hours.
Many believe that Origi may well be a better option in attack than linked-away Gayle, with some particularly keen on taking Origi on loan to save money for funds on other positions, or for a big-name striker next summer.
Others aren't quite so convinced that Origi would be a viable replacement for Gayle, but the general consensus is that Newcastle would be making a smart addition by snapping up the Liverpool misfit this week.
Saying it's okay to sell Gayle if we get a suitable replacement in is all well and good but what is suitable? Origi? I'm not convinced— Michael (@mquinnNUFC) August 29, 2017
Even if on loan, I'd be happy with Divock Origi replacing Gayle. I just hope we use the funds on another position #NUFC— Merino (@MagicianMerino) August 29, 2017
Origi would be a big upgrade on Gayle, but we need both! so short if he goes and we don't get him/another. #NUFC— Andrew Lowe (@Andyloweuk) August 29, 2017
If we got Origi, he would absolutely start every single match. That's for sure. #NUFC— The Exiled Geordies (@NUFC_Podcast) August 29, 2017
Origi the latest I've seen us linked with. I'd take him! #NUFC— Danny Bundock (@danbundock23) August 29, 2017
If Gayle goes, Origi can be guaranteed games so will come on loan. The 15-18m will free up money for other areas too. Good deal. #NUFC— NUFC Follower (@NUFCFollower) August 29, 2017
Would take £18m for Gayle but ONLY if we get a top striker in. Origi on loan would be superb. Survive this season then spend bigger next yr.— Adam Matues (@AdamMatues) August 29, 2017
Origi will be a good signing— Ryan Anthony Moseley (@RyanMoseleynufc) August 29, 2017
