There is no command-line option but you can set the john.conf option 
"StatusShowCandidates = Y".

In 1.7.9-jumbo-7 the figure is "words x hash" combinations so if you are 
attacking 1000 hashes, "43210" means you have tried about 43 words from 
your wordlist. In bleeding-jumbo the figure is actual words tried 
regardless of number of hashes or salts.
