Liverpool are in pole position to clinch the signature of Divock Origi after they agreed a fee and personal terms, and despite interest from Tottenham will be confident of completing the deal, according to the Telegraph.
While Tottenham have made a late move for the 19-year-old, who has impressed during this summer’s World Cup as Belgium made the quarter finals, he is widely expected to complete a move to Liverpool in the near future.
As part of the deal the teenager will then head back to current club Lille for a season long loan to continue his development with first team football.
The Reds are also expected to tie up a deal for winger Lazar Markovic for £25m – with the two transfers set to push Liverpool’s summer spend beyond £70m.
Much of this however should be recouped by the potential sale of shamed star striker Luis Suarez, who is currently discussing a deal with Spanish giants Barcelona.
