Newcastle United and Aston Villa are said to be interested in Liverpool hitman Divock Origi.

It looks certain that the Belgian striker will be ending his seven-year stint as a Reds player this summer due to reduced playing time under Jurgen Klopp.

So far this season, the Liverpool boss has given him only 181 minutes of Premier League football across nine appearances.

And El Gol Digital has reported that in addition to Real Sociedad, Aston Villa, Newcastle and Wolverhampton Wanderers are among the English teams keen on the 25-year-old.

What on earth has happened to Alisson Becker?

The report adds that Origi – who cost Liverpool £10 million in 2014 – wants regular football and he will choose a club where a weekly spot in the first XI is guaranteed.

The former Lille starlet, valued at £17 million according to the report, has never really lived up to his billing on Merseyside, but he has had some very special moments.

Nearly two years ago, Liverpool fans reveled in the sight of a dejected Lionel Messi leaving the pitch at Anfield following a shock Champions League defeat for Barcelona, who held a 3-0 first-leg lead.

Origi scored two goals that night – and another in the final against Spurs – as Klopp’s side dumped Messi and co out of the competition.

Origi has 19 goals in 100 Premier League outings for the reigning champions.
