Aston Villa have been linked with Liverpool striker Divock Origi.

According to reports, Villa are weighing up a move for the Belgium international to bolster Dean Smith’s options in attack.

Signing a new forward is thought to be a priority in the transfer window after Villa secured their Premier League safety.

Club-record arrival Wesley Moraes is still working his way back to full fitness while Mbwana Samatta and Keinan Davis struggled to make an impact during the relegation run-in.

Origi made 44 appearances for Liverpool this season but the majority of those came as a substitute with the 25-year-old behind Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino in Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

He scored vital goals for the Reds on the way to Champions League glory last year but is being tipped for an Anfield exit this summer to boost his international hopes.
