Liverpool set to sign Origi

Liverpool appear to have won the battle for Belgian starlet Divock Origi, reports the Mirror, after Tottenham and West Ham made last ditch efforts to sign the striker.

MirrorSport has understood that both London clubs made late swoops for the teenager, who is impressing as part of the Belgium squad at this summer’s World Cup, even offering a first team birth for the striker in attempt to close out any deal.

But it appears that Liverpool have won the battle, after reportedly agreeing a fee thought to be £9.8m – who can also offer the Belgian Champions League football.

The Reds had planned to loan back Origi to current club Lille to further his development but the situation may not come to pass with Luis Suarez’s future now up in the air.

Belgian team mate and Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen has already tipped Origi to shine in the Premier League should he earn a move to a top flight club.

Vertonghen said: “He has the qualities to play for a good team in the Premier League and I think he shows it every game.”

Origi has been mainly used from the bench so far at this World Cup, but has made significant impacts on the games he has played – scoring a late winner against Russia as Belgium made it three wins in their group.
