Liverpool have completed the signing of Belgium striker Divock Origi from Lille for £10m.
The 19-year-old agreed to a five-year deal that will see him remain at the French club on loan next season and move to Anfield in 2015.
“I am very happy and delighted a club as big as Liverpool showed interest in me,” he said. “I’m very excited.”
Origi played in all five of Belgium’s games at the 2014 Fifa World Cup during their run to the quarter-finals and scored in the 1-0 win over Russia.
Origi began his career at Genk before moving to Lille as a 15-year-old.
He is Liverpool’s sixth signing of the summer following Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Dejan Lovren from Southampton, plus Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen and Lazar Markovic from Benfica.
