The Belgium striker crushed Barcelona's Champions League dream. He bagged a sensational brace as Liverpool dumped the Spanish giants out of Europe.

Liverpool face Tottenham in the Champions League final and ahead of the showcase fixture, Barcelona have been strongly linked with Origi.

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona want to sign Origi as back up to Luis Suarez in addition to Antoine Griezmann, who remains heavily linked with a move to the Camp Nou following his announcement.

The Atletico Madrid ace has confirmed he's leaving the club with Barcelona the front-runners to acquire his services.

Ernesto Valverde is also keen on snapping up a striker to provide competition for Suarez, who bagged 21 La Liga goals last season but just one goal in the Champions League.

Origi, 24, is out of contract at Liverpool next year. However, the club are believed to be in talks over a new deal with teams around Europe keeping tabs on his situation.

He isn't the only player Barcelona are monitoring.

They have also identified Spurs' Fernando Llorente, who has also produced heroics in Europe. He scored against Manchester City and starred for his side in the semi-final second leg against Ajax.
