Liverpool are reportedly set to confirm the signing of Belgian striker Divock Origi on Monday after the Lille forward agreed a five year deal with the Anfield club, according to the Daily Star.
Origi made headlines during the summer after forcing his way into Marc Wilmots’ World Cup squad. He had an impact on the competition, scoring his first international goal after replacing Romelu Lukaku in Belgium’s second game of the competition. Origi bagged in the 88th minute to give the European side a 1-0 win against Russia.
The Belgian international passed a medical with the Merseyside team on Friday, having joined them on their United States tour, and would become their fifth signing of the summer, after the captures of Emre Can, Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Lazar Markovic.
Origi was also joined in Boston by Loic Remy, who is likely to confirm a move to Liverpool shortly, and they are also expected to sign Dejan Lovren from Southampton.
