Atlético Madrid could switch their attentions to Liverpool striker Divock Origi, according to reports in the UK and US media.

Atleti so far thwarted in pursuit of Costa 

Los Rojiblancos have up to now been frustrated in their efforts to bring back Chelsea's Diego Costa, who left the Vicente Calderón for West London two years ago.

And Bleacher Report says Atleti coach Diego Simeone believes he could mould Belgium international Origi to fit the way his side plays.

Klopp likely to scotch Origi exit

However, Bleacher also adds that Reds boss Jürgen Klopp is not expected to be willing to see the 21-year-old be prised away from Anfield.

The former Lille man scored 10 goals in 33 appearances for Liverpool last season.
