Eddie Howe’s charges are battling against Premier League relegation and Callum Wilson could be out long-term.

Origi’s contract could automatically be extended by a year.

However, this depends on the number of Premier League starts he makes this season.

And to date, Origi hasn’t started a single league game this term.

The Telegraph adds that Liverpool will not stand in Origi’s way if a bid is made and he wants to move on.

This is despite Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane heading to the Africa Cup of Nations.

Origi is a cult hero at Liverpool thanks to several crucial goals in the club’s recent history.

And some Liverpool fans don’t want to see him leave amid the Newcastle rumours:

Rio Ferdinand labelled Origi “unbelievable” after he scored a winner against Wolves this season.

He lauded the way the forward is able to step up whenever he gets the nod to play.

Meanwhile, Pep Lijnders described him as a “world-class finisher“.
