Barcelona are planning a surprise move for Liverpool forward Divock Origi, just weeks after the Belgian’s brace helped dump the Spanish giants out of the Champions League.

According to Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, relayed in an article by Sport Witness, Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde is keen on bringing in two strikers this summer.

One of the forwards expected to arrive at the Nou Camp is Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, with the Frenchman announcing he will leave Atletico last week.

However, according to the report, the second striker Barca are considering signing is either Origi or Tottenham Hotspur’s Fernando Llorente.

Origi netted twice at Anfield against Barcelona two weeks ago as Jurgen Klopp’s side booked their place in the Champions League final with a remarkable 4-0 victory.

Llorente has also scored a vital European goal for Spurs this season, with his bundled effort back in April enough for Mauricio Pochettino’s side to defeat Manchester City.

Origi’s current Reds deal expires next summer and the 24-year-old is yet to commit his future at Anfield, so there may well be some substance in the Spanish media’s report.
