Wolves boss Nuno admits he's seeking new striker; Liverpool outcast Origi on radar

Wolves boss Nuno admits he's seeking a new striker in January.

Reds striker Divock Origi has been linked with a move away from Anfield after seeing his first-team minutes reduced by the arrival of Diogo Jota. Origi used to be first in reserve for Jurgen Klopp if any of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Roberto Firmino were unavailable but Jota has leapfrogged him in the pecking order.

Takumi Minamino also appears to have cut down Origi's minutes after starting against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

"Raul's doing what he has to do," said Nuno.

"Relax, recover his health, then comes the physical improvement, fitness levels. But we have to be patient...that will take time.

"The window is coming and we are getting ready."
