Spurs set to hijack Liverpool’s Origi move

Liverpool looked set to complete the move for Lille’s Divock Origi but ESPN are reporting Tottenham will try a late bid to steal the player.

Origi became Belgium’s youngest ever World Cup goal scorer this summer when he scored an 88th minute winner v Russia in their Group H clash. After a strong tournament showing, interest surrounding his future grew with Liverpool in pole position.

It was thought that the 19 year old would finalise a deal to Anfield this week but Tottenham are seeking to bring him to White Hart Lane if they can persuade him to change his mind.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been busy this transfer window, already signing Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana from Southampton, Emre Can from Bayer Leverkusen and agreeing a deal with Benfica winger Lazer Markovic
