Reports in France say Belgian could be at Anfield in January.
Divock Origi could be allowed to return to parent club Liverpool in January with the Merseyside club offering Lille extra compensation to release him early.

Origi was bought from Lille by Brendan Rodgers’ side in the summer for €13m and immediately loaned back to the French side.
Cash-strapped Lille are tempted to allow the Belgian to leave France early if they receive suitable compensation for the loan’s premature ending, and Liverpool would be willing to pay €4m to try and help bolster their fading attack, according to L’Equipe.
With Daniel Sturridge out for all but three games this season and the Reds still suffering from the loss of Luis Suarez’s goals in the summer, recalling Origi could be a masterstroke by Rodgers in their fight for Champions League qualification.
The only problem for Liverpool is that Origi might fit their aggressive and attacking style of play but is bang out of form with just four goals and two assists in 22 appearances this season, his last goal in the league coming back in October.
An early return could lead to expectations of a big impact and if the Belgian international doesn’t reach those heights his Anfield career could be over before it’s even begun.
