Newcastle to go for Origi or Solanke

According to Newcastle Chronicle, Newcastle United are preparing to dip into the winter transfer market for a striker, an attacking midfielder and a left-back.

Manager Rafa Benitez has reportedly asked a number of clubs across Europe to keep him notified of their players’ availability in January, the month that he sees as crucial for their hopes of Premier League survival. As for strikers, the Spaniard has inquired at his former club Liverpool about the situations of Divock Origi and Dominic Solanke.

With the resurgence of the fully fit Daniel Sturridge and the continued presence of Roberto Firmino in the centre-forward role, Origi and Solanke haven’t featured for Jurgen Klopp’s team this season at all so far, and at least one of them leaving the club in January seems a real possibility.

However, the Magpies already have two players on loan from English clubs, Kenedy and Salomon Rondon, which prevents them from doing a deal of that sort for another. With that in mind, Liverpool are likelier to part ways with Origi, as they would probably like to keep the 20-year-old Solanke on their books for a while longer.
