Liverpool's Lille loanee Origi will have 'big say' in Premier League - Everton's Martinez

Everton boss Roberto Martinez believes Divock Origi is going to be a very good player in the English Premier League.

The 19-year old Belgian striker is on loan back at former club Lille after signing with Liverpool in the summer and Martinez is very wary of his abilities ahead of his side's Europa League clash with Les Dogues on Thursday night.

"Divock Origi is a well-known player already, including in England after his role in the World Cup with Belgium," Martinez said.

"We know that in years to come he is going to have a big say in the Premier League - he is a very talented young man."

Origi, who joined the Reds for £10million in July, has scored four goals in nine outings since being on loan at Lille including the opener in their 1-1 Europa League draw with Wolfsburg on October 2.
