New Liverpool signing Divock Origi is a 'monster' who will become one of the 'top five strikers in the world' according to his international teammate Vincent Kompany.
The Manchester City captain was full of praise for the recent Liverpool capture, who was signed from Lille for £10m but was quickly sent back on loan to the French club for the season.
And Kompany believes Origi has the potential to be one of the top players in the world.
"He is very gifted and talented, technically he's a monster," Kompany said as reported by the Daily Star. "More importantly, he is an outstanding worker in training. I see him working like crazy.
"If he continues in his way, in a few years he will be among the five or ten best strikers in the world."
When he signed him from Lille over the summer, Brendan Rodgers said that he believes Origi can become a world class forward for Liverpool given time to develop.
The Belgian international, who featured and impressed for his country off the bench at the World Cup last summer, is currently Lille's top Ligue 1 goalscorer with three goals in seven appearances so far this season.
The 19-year-old forward never had a great goalscoring record for Lille in the two seasons he spent in the first team prior to his Liverpool signing, managing six goals in 40 league appearances.
He played largely as a winger in his last spell at Lille but they've been playing him through the middle this term.
Kompany played with Origi at the World Cup as Belgium reached the quarter-final stage, only to fall short to eventual finalists Argentina. Gonzalo Higuain scored the only goal of the game in the eighth minute.
