Brendan Rodgers is expected to soon confirm the 19-year-old Lille forward, who scored a late winner against Russia at the World Cup in Brazil, as his sixth signing of the summer.

And one of Origi's international team-mates, Reds goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, reckons he has all the qualities to make an impact in a team shorn of star attacker Luis Suarez. 

"He did really well for Belgium," Mignolet said of a player also linked with Tottenham. "We didn't know that much about him but he came in and showed something to the outside world.

"He's definitely got ability; he's strong and quick, he's got skill, he can score a goal as well, so he's got all the qualities you need to become a top striker in the Premier League."

Pepe Reina has returned to Anfield following a season on loan at Napoli but Mignolet insisted he is relishing fresh competition for the goalkeeper's jersey.

"Competition can only be a good thing," Mignolet added.

"It makes you a better player. I'm very happy that everyone is here; we'll work hard in training and push each other on to a better level."
