The Reds had long been linked with the 19-year-old, and were said to have been in talks with Lille since before the World Cup, where Origi announced himself to the world with some impressive displays.
He is now reportedly set to join up with Liverpool in America, where they are currently on tour, to undergo a medical before re-joining Lille on a season-long loan.
“The deal isn’t done yet. Liverpool is still the most concrete option,” Mike Origi told Belgian publication Mediahuis.
“There’s another team that shows interest. We want to take a decision soon. On Monday, Divock is expected back at for their [Lille’s] first training session.
“We would like to have everything wrapped before that day.”
