Reds agree personal terms for 19-year-old Origi.
Liverpool have apparently beaten off competition from the likes of West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur to agree a deal for highly rated 19-year old striker Divock Origi, according to the Mirror.
The Reds have agreed a £9.8 million fee with French club Lille for the teenage striker, and have also progressed significantly towards agreeing personal terms with the highly rated talent.
The likes of Tottenham and West Ham were also firmly on Origi’s case, but Liverpool have moved swiftly enough to be in a strong position to conclude the deal as they can offer the youngster the lure of Champions League football.
Moreover, reports also suggest that Kop boss Brendan Rodgers has also guaranteed the youngster a regular first team berth at Anfield, and although there were suggestions of Liverpool loaning the forward back to Lille for next season, Rodgers has changed his mind.
The uncertainty over the Anfield future of Reds star Luis Suarez has gotten the Merseyside club to consider keeping Origi as a backup striker.
