Photo claims to show Divock Origi at Liverpool talks, medical rumours denied

Liverpool are edging closer to signing Divock Origi.

Liverpool are moving closer to signing Divock Origi after he was pictured at the club's Melwood training ground on Wednesday afternoon.

The Belgian international striker impressed at the World Cup, and immediately attracted interest from the Reds, with Tottenham, Wolfsburg and Real Madrid all interested.

Origi scored against Russia and displaced Romelu Lukaku in the side, confirming his huge potential at just 19.

Liverpool have been linked with signing him from Lille, and Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed he has already had his medical at the club this afternoon.

A photo claiming to display Origi at Melwood has been circulating via Twitter, and was put to Times journalist Tony Barrett with a query by a fan.

Barrett confirmed Origi was at Liverpool, but denied it was for his medical. Clearly however there is progress on a deal which has been speculated for the best part of a fortnight.

Lille are claimed to want Origi back on loan for the season, although Liverpool are yet to indicate whether this is a proposition they wish to agree to.
