Origi in Liverpool, Spurs link


ORIGI-RUSSIALONDON, June 24- Lille striker Divock Origi admits a move to the Premier League would be a dream come true after being linked with Tottenham and Liverpool.

The Belgium international, who scored his first senior goal on Monday to clinch a 1-0 win over Russia at the World Cup, has attracted glances from England after breaking into national set-up this year.

New Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is looking to bolster his attacking options ahead of the new season, with the futures of strike duo Roberto Soldado and Emmanuel Adebayor uncertain.

Origi has revealed an admiration for the English top flight since he was kid, however, the 19-year-old is concentrating on helping Marc Wilmots’ side in Brazil before deciding on his future.

The teenager has so far come off the bench in both Group H encounters against Algeria and the Russians as a replacement for Romelu Lukaku.

He told reporters at the Red Devils’ training base in Brazil: “As a little boy I always dreamed of playing in the Premier League but I’m still young and now I’m in an important tournament so I’m try to focus on the team. Then my entourage will see with Lille what I’ll do.”
