It has led former Premier League forward Kevin Phillips to suggest that Leeds could make a move for him as they look for an alternative to first-choice No.9 Patrick Bamford.
Would you take Origi at Leeds?
It is a move, however, that Wainman would be totally against, keen for his side not to pick up Liverpool’s unwanted players.
“No, not for me,” Wainman told TIF. “I don’t think we need Divock Origi in the door personally. We don’t need Liverpool rejects, the players that they’ve struggled to get rid of.
“Patrick Bamford will play in the nine and if he gets injured, I think Rodrigo will take that.”
After some initial struggles, Rodrigo’s form really picked up towards the end of last season.
In final fixtures against Tottenham, Burnley, Southampton and West Brom, the Spaniard managed to score four goals, blanking only against the Saints. So if Bielsa does not end up bringing in a new striker this summer, then you probably would expect Rodrigo to deputise for Bamford.
