The Toffees are said to be keen on Origi, as they seek a striker to lead their line.
If Everton are to break into the top six, it seems likely that they will need a new centre forward to carry the goalscoring responsibility for them.
Everton already have Cenk Tosun who can play up-front, but the Turkish striker hasn’t been prolific this term.
Richarlison has been picked in a more central role recently, but he appears more effective from the wing.
But Origi would not be the answer to Everton’s problems, as his own form has been poor of late.
Origi scored just six goals in Germany over the whole of last campaign, and Everton would be showing signs of desperation if they turned to him.
Marco Silva may want a new number nine, but the Toffees should wait around until a better option becomes available, before they actually bring a new forward in.
