Liverpool make Origi their SIXTH signing
Liverpool have confirmed their sixth signing of the summer with the capture of Divock Origi from Lille.
According to the BBC, the 19-year-old Belgian striker signed a five-year-deal and was bought for a £10 milllion ($21.1m) fee.
While he rose to prominence with a good showing at the World Cup, Origi will spend the upcoming season on loan back in France with Lille.
Speaking to Liverpool's official website, manager Brendan Rodgers said: "He's super fast, has a wonderful touch, he's a good size and is aggressive. What I like, and what I have in other players, is that humility to work hard.
"I've seen enough of him over the course of the last couple of seasons to think this is a kid who, coming into the right environment, can genuinely be world class.
"He will go back to Lille and play there for the season on loan, but by signing him, we'll have a wonderful player - not only now when he comes in next season, but also in the future."
During the World Cup, Origi played five matches for Belgium, netting the Red Devils' late winner against Russia in the group stages.
Across Merseyside, there was good news for Everton after Ross Barkley, 20, committed to a new four-year contract at Goodison Park.
The England starlet had been linked with a move to English champions Manchester City but has ended speculation by penning a new deal worth £65,000 a week.
