Liverpool have no made an enquiry over recalling Divock Origi from his loan spell at Lille in order to cure their current attacking crisis.

Origi returned to the Ligue 1 club on a season-long loan after sealing a permanent move to Anfield during the summer transfer window, and has netted four goals this season.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have suffered in front of goal since Luis Suarez's departure to Barcelona, with Daniel Sturridge having missed the last two months with injury while Mario Balotelli is yet to net a league goal since joining from AC Milan.

Reports had suggested Liverpool were hoping to agree an early end to Origi's loan spell in France and recall the player for the second half of the season but Lille coach Rene Girard says no approach has been made by the Premier League club.

"It's only a rumour," Girard told Belgian radio RTBF. "There have been no approaches, as far as I know. It was agreed that Divock spend the year with us. There's no reason he should leave midway through the season. We really need him.

"Divock has no reason to envy them, given his youth and his desire to succeed. He's going to continue improving year-on-year and I think next year, he's going to be able to show he's one of Europe's greats."

After netting five goals in 12 league starts for Lille last season, Origi burst on to the scene at the World Cup for Belgium, netting the winner in the group stage victory over Russia, while he impressed with his speed and strength.

The 19-year-old striker is tipped for future stardom with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers claiming Origi can be the long-term replacement for Suarez at Liverpool and Girard says he has "all the attributes" to fulfil his potential.

"Currently, in terms of his heading, he must be at around 30 or 40% of his means," he added.

"I am convinced that heading is more a state of mind rather than something truly technical. You go looking for the ball with your head if you really want to, and you can also use it as a weapon if you want to. There are players who aren't very big but who are excellent headers of the ball.

"I think he's a boy who still has some way to go. Right now, he's at a club where he can grow by playing. He's a boy who has the makings of a great player. He has all the attributes."
