Newcastle United are thought to be keen on bringing Liverpool forward Divock Origi to St James' Park in January, with a loan move being touted.

The Magpies will reportedly be given a £50 million transfer budget in the next transfer window as they embark on a new chapter under their new owners.

Naturally, the Premier League side have been linked with several names since last month's takeover, with Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic and Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot mentioned.

Eddie Howe's side are also keen on bringing Liverpool forward Origi to the club, according to The Northern Echo, who claim the Belgium international is regarded as a potential loan option.

The report goes on to claim that Newcastle's ownership group are ready to target players 'who are entering the final six months of their current deal'.

United will also target those who are struggling for game time, with Jesse Lingard and Oleksandr Zinchenko named.

In an interview with SPORTbible earlier this month, former Newcastle manager Sam Allardyce said the Magpies could be a great place for Origi to pick up first-team starts and flourish.

"I've always thought Origi needs to leave Liverpool," he said. "And budget-wise, he'd probably be a lot cheaper than a Harry Kane, for example.

"Even though he's done a brilliant job for Liverpool, he needs to be a first-team player every week and perhaps Newcastle could give him that opportunity to flourish."

Origi, who has made just two Premier League appearances for Jurgen Klopp's side this season, has also been tipped to leave Anfield by former Belgium coach Gert Verheyen.

"We just don't know how good he is today. In his youth, Divock was a class act. But by staying with Liverpool and playing little, he hasn't developed further," he told Het Nieuwsblad.

"Can you blame him [for staying at Anfield]? That's his choice. Liverpool must be a fantastic club to play for. But at some point you want to play, don't you?

"I think it would be a shame for Origi's talent."
