Liverpool could boost their striking options by recalling striker Divock Origi from his loan spell at Lille, according to the Daily Star.
Reports suggest Brendan Rodgers is eager to bring the 19-year-old to Anfield as soon as possible, with his side struggling for goals, and Origi having netted seven for club and country already this season.
The Belgian could make an early return to the club he signed for in the summer, but only if an agreement is reached by all three parties – which may involve Liverpool paying more money to the Ligue 1 club.
Origi has been tipped for great things by Brendan Rodgers and Manchester City and Belgium captain Vincent Kompany in recent weeks.
And the young striker also revealed recently he keeps in regular touch with the Liverpool boss.
“The Liverpool manager regularly sends me a text message. They follow me and scouts attend all my games,” Origi said.
“Rodgers wanted to add me to his squad immediately, but Lille wanted me to stay for one more season. I had no choice.
“It’s not that I don’t want to go to Liverpool, I have ambitions.
“But it’s an advantage I’m at Lille for a season where I can continue to develop and play a lot. That’s the positive side of the story.”
