Liverpool does not plan to recall Origi from his season-long loan to Lille, according to the Daily Mail.

Origi has scored five goals for Lille in 11 games, which grew speculation that Liverpool may recall the forward to assist with their campaign. Terms of Origi's sale to Liverpool dictate that the season-long loan back to the French side cannot happen in January, though.

Origi drew a foul in the the box and then scored from the penalty spot in the 69th minute of Lille's 1-0 victory over Caen on Friday.

Origi, who was sold to Liverpool this summer and then sent back to Lille on loan for the season, pushed Lille to the top of the Ligue 1 table, although it's likely only briefly as most other clubs play later in the weekend. Origi, 19, scored five goals in 12 appearances last season and looks primed to beat that figure this season.

Origi officially signed with Liverpool on Tuesday after transferring from Ligue 1 side Lille, where he will play on loan for the 2014-15 season.

Origi made an international name for himself after displacing Romelu Lukaku in Belgium's starting XI at the World Cup this summer, scoring a late winner against Russia in the group stage. At just 19 years old, Origi will get another year of consistent first team football in France before fighting for a spot in the starting XI at Anfield next season.

Origi is believed to be close to a transfer to English Premier League side Liverpool in a 9.8 million move from Lille, the Independent reports.

Lille were apparently hesitant to part with their 19 year old striker, but Liverpool have indicated they are willing to loan him back to the French side for the upcoming season. Origi was impressive for Belgium during the World Cup, even displacing Romelu Lukaku in the starting XI. While he could be a contributor for the Reds down the line, his short-term EPL fantasy value is very limited.

Origi came on for Romelu Lukaku in the 57th minute and then scored the game-winner in the 88th minute of Belgium's 1-0 win over Russia in the World Cup on Saturday.

Lukaku has struggled mightily in Belgium's two games in Brazil, and Origi could find himself in the starting XI on Thursday against Korea Republic.
