Divock Origi hopes to complete his move to Liverpool ahead of schedule with his current club Lille.
The Belgium international is poised to complete his reported £10m ($15.6m) move to the Reds at the end of the current campaign, but with Anfield struggling for goals, the striker as revealed earlier as well, is willing to join them ahead of the agreed schedule in January.
Brendan Rodgers is a big fan of the striker and agreed terms for the transfer of the striker with the Ligue 1 club during the summer, but he was immediately loaned back to Lille to continue his football development for another season before moving to Anfield next season.
However, the striker is now keen to join Liverpool 'sooner rather than later' and is hoping that the two clubs come to an understanding regarding his transfer.
"Maybe January, who knows? It's not me who makes the decisions, but if the club chooses to let me go in January, I would go. I would like to join Liverpool then," Origi said, as quoted by the Liverpool Echo.
"Although I agreed to stay with Lille until the end of this season, if there was that chance of joining Liverpool sooner, I would take it – I would love to move sooner rather than later."
The 19-year-old striker has revealed that he is in regular contact with the manager and the club's medical staff, who are constantly keeping track of the striker.
"Brendan Rodgers is in contact. That makes me feel very good and wanted. Also the medical staff, they stay in touch for the same reason, telling me they are looking forward to me coming to the club," the on-loan Lille striker added.
Despite scoring five goals for the club and country this season, Origi feels that his game will be better suited to the Premier League after admitting that the French League is a bit frustrating.
"I'm here at Lille. It's fine. They are a good club and they have helped me. But it is also frustrating. It is French football."
"I can't wait to be playing in the Premier League because I can now see that it will suit me better. I think there are good things waiting for me with Liverpool," Origi concluded.
