The 19-year-old, who currently plays in France with Lille, has impressed during his two substitute appearances in Brazil and he stepped off the bench to net a late winner as Belgium beat Russia 1-0 to secure their place in the last 16.

Tottenham have reportedly been keeping tabs on the striker, while Arsenal and Liverpool are among the host of other European clubs to have been linked with a move for him.

Origi says that he is only concerned about the World Cup at this moment in time, but acknowledges that playing in the top flight of English football is something that has appealed to him for some time.

"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," he said. "Then my entourage will see with Lille what I'll do."

Origi featured 30 times in Ligue 1 last season, scoring six goals in the process as Lille secured an impressive third-placed finish.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
