Anfield side closing in on five further summer signings having already completed three deals.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has already completed deals to sign Rickie Lambert, Emre Can and Adam Lallana but it appears he has many more new additions up his sleeve.
The Daily Star claims that five more players are closing in on Anfield switches.
Having banked £75m from the sale of Luis Suarez to Barcelona it’s clear that the club’s American owners are keen to hand those funds to Rodgers to help boost his squad ahead of their return to Champions League action.
Divock Origi (Lille) £11m
This source claims that moves to bring in the 19 year old Belgian are pretty much done and dusted with only the ‘formalities’ left to be completed.
Origi had a standout campaign at Lille last term and then impressed at the World Cup, scoring the winner against Russia, with an £11m deal to join Liverpool on the cards.
By all accounts such a deal will see Origi immediately loaned back to Lille, who will no doubt keen to have the youngster on board as they also have a Champions League campaign to plan for.
Origi will certainly help to boost the Liverpool attack and is surely a better ‘back-up’ option than the likes of Iago Aspas and Fabio Borini and will provide an option out wide, where loaned in Chelsea man Victor Moses failed to impress last term.
