Dad tells Rodgers Divock Origi has chosen Liverpool
Lille striker Divock Origi has told Liverpool he wants to move to Anfield. The Mirror says Origi will complete a £12.5million move in the next few days after choosing the Reds ahead of Arsenal, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid.
Origi's father Mike has flown to the United States to meet with Liverpool officials in Boston to conclude a deal which will see the 19-year-old loaned back to the French club for next season.
It took the striker almost three weeks to decide on his next club after being given a guided tour of Anfield and the club's training ground at Melwood by Brendan Rodgers.
