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.
