Lille forward Divock Origi is interested in a January move to his parent club Liverpool, if the two clubs can reach an agreement on a fee, according to reports.
Liverpool's Sluggish Start
The Guardian claims that the move could be made due to the poor form Liverpool have displayed in front of goal, with £16 million striker Mario Balotelli not justifying his price tag and last season's top English goal-scorer Daniel Sturridge struggling with injury issues.
Throughout the season questions have been asked over potential solutions to these problems, with talks of mega-money being spent in the upcoming transfer window rife. However with Origi already owned by the club, there may be a much cheaper option right in front of them.
Divock Origi is on fire for Lille
This season the Belgian forward has been deployed in a number of positions, mainly though the middle and out on the left, demonstrating an adaptability that Brendan Rodgers likes in players and one of the many reasons Liverpool signed him in the first place.
His performances in Ligue 1 have also earned him numerous calls up to the Belgian national side, where he has replaced Romelu Lukaku as the main man upfront.
