Football News understands that Liverpool and Lille have struck most of the deal for the transfer of Divock Origi.
The clubs have agreed an initial fee of £8m, but have yet to agree on all the various bonuses.
Divock Origi has provisionally agreed a contract with Liverpool, running for 5 years and will be loaned back to Lille for the 2014/2015 campaign should the move go through.
Borussia Dortmund have made an enquiry this week regarding the player, but it would appear in vain.
Final details on both the deal and contract side to be completed, but it would appear merely a question of formalities. The deal is virtually closed, and both parties seem confident the move will be completed next week.
In the last minutes, our colleagues at Sky Italia have announced that Real Madrid have made an offer to Lille for Divock Origi. This last ditch bid is, at the time of writing, unlikely to affect the player’s probable move to Liverpool.
