Still a teenager, Origi was part of the Belgium squad for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, dislodging Romelu Lukaku from the starting line up after scoring the winner against Russia in the group stages.

His impressive performances led to interest from Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers, who was keen to add to his attacking armoury following the departure of last seasons top goal scorer Luis Suarez to Barcelona. Origi becomes the clubs sixth signing of a busy summer, following the arrivals of Southampton trio Adam Lallana, Rickie Lambert and Dejan Lovren, Benfica's Lazar Markovic and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can.


The signing of Origi fits into the policy favoured by the clubs owners, Fenway Sports Group, of buying young players with potential and resale value. Origi, 19, will become the latest of a promising crop of young talent at Anfield including the likes of Raheem Sterling, Phillipe Coutinho and new signing Markovic.

Brendan Rodgers will be looking to continue his recruitment drive with the signing of another striker, after the collapse of his move for Queens Park Rangers front man Loic Remy.
