Divock Origi undecided on Liverpool

Liverpool are closing in on the signings of Belgium striker Divock Origi from Lille and Serbia midfielder Lazar Markovic from Benfica.

Divock Origi has arrived in Liverpool to discuss a transfer from Lille, but has told the Liverpool Echo he remains undecided about his future.

Markovic set for Liverpool medical

Origi, 19, who helped Belgium reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup, is on Merseyside for talks after the Reds agreed a fee for him, sources have told ESPN FC.

Liverpool are set to pay an initial fee of six million pounds for the striker, although that could rise to 9.5 million pounds with various add-ons. As part of the deal, Origi would be loaned back to Lille for the coming season.

Tottenham are believed to have made a late bid for the teenager, although Liverpool remain favourites to secure his signature.

Origi, who scored five goals in 12 Ligue 1 starts for Lille last season, has travelled to Merseyside with his father Mike, a former Kenya international who played for Genk.

However, the Belgium international says he has not made a decision as to where he will play his football next season.

"I myself am still thinking about it. It is true that there are offers from all over Europe," he said.

"Now I have to look carefully where I will grow as a player and as a person. I think it will be clearer, within two weeks at the most."

Liverpool have completed three signings so far this summer, bringing in Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Emre Can, as well as two England internationals from Southampton -- striker Rickie Lambert and midfielder Adam Lallana.

They are also closing in on a 20 million-pound deal for Benfica winger Lazar Markovic, which could be confirmed as early as Thursday.

Reds manager Brendan Rodgers is still looking to strengthen in defence, but the club have so far been unable to agree a fee with Southampton for centre-back Dejan Lovren or with Sevilla for left-back Alberto Moreno.
