Revealed: Majority of Newcastle fans back Origi to make an impact at St James’ Park

Last season, Newcastle United managed to retain their Premier League status, but they struggled to impress in front of goal.

Dwight Gayle, Joselu and loan signing Islam Slimani failed to deliver, while Aleksander Mitrovic was sent to Fulham on a temporary deal.

With that in mind, it would make sense for Newcastle to jump into the summer market with a new attacker in mind.

One who could potentially attract at interest is Liverpool forward Divock Origi, who has struggled for game time at Anfield.

The Belgium international, who has earned 25 caps for his country, has been with the Reds since 2015 but he has only hit the back of the net 12 times in the Premier League.

Origi spent the 2017-18 campaign on loan at Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg, where he scored seven times.

Given that the forward is likely to be sitting on the sidelines for the majority of Liverpool’s campaign this season, the Merseyside outfit may be open to a loan, or even a sale.

We asked you whether Newcastle should try to lure Origi to St James’ Park, and the majority of fans are welcome to the idea.
