The Belgium international signed for the Merseyside club last summer, but was immediately loaned back to his former team. The Reds’ strikers struggled through the season with either injury in Daniel Sturridge’s case or form in Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert, and Fabio Borini’s cases.

As such the 20-year-old is looking forward to changing these attacking fortunes when he arrives. He had ten goals in 45 appearances for the French club last time round, which will need to be improved next term if he wants to live up to expectations.

The forward has some ambitious plans with Brendan Rodgers’ side, aiming to win the top flight already. In the last campaign the team came 25 points behind champions Chelsea, a massive gap to bridge in just one summer. Even so, their soon to return youngster thinks that this is possible.

He said: “I think Liverpool is a wonderful club that deserves to be at the top and to be honest with the players they have, with the quality they have, then they should be finishing at the top of the league.

“I’m very happy to be going there. Brendan Rodgers is a very good coach and he has proved that so it will be very exciting to work with a world-class coach.”

However Origi does still realise it will take a lot of hard work to adapt to English football after playing in Ligue 1.

He added: “Most of all it is important to be at a good club where people believe in you and where you feel good and at Liverpool I had a really good feeling and they have experience of working with young players.

“It’s always nice to play with good players. The important thing is that I work hard and then I think everything will be okay.”
