Tottenham Hotspur have been encouraged to not give up on their pursuit of Divock Origi after the World Cup starlet revealed he is yet to make a decision regarding his future despite reports suggesting he has agreed to join Liverpool.
The Belgium international proved to be a sensation in Brazil this summer where he earned a place in Marc Wimots' starting line-up even ahead of Romelu Lukaku after scoring his side's winner in the 1-0 victory over Russia in the group stage.
Having scored five goals for Lille last season, the 19-year-old has reportedly attracted the interest of a number of Premier League clubs including Tottenham, Arsenal, West Ham United and the Reds.
However, recent reports claimed that Brendan Rodgers' side had won the race for his signature after agreeing a £9.8m deal with Lille for the transfer of the player.
Although Rodgers has already added a striker to the squad in the form of Rickie Lambert, reports claimed the Liverpool manager wanted the 19-year-old as part of his future plans at Anfield and was considering sending him back to Lille on loan to continue his development.
However, Origi himself has rubbished those reports claiming that he has yet to decide where he will play next season – although he confirmed a number of offers from European clubs.
"I myself am still thinking about it. It is true that there are offers from all over Europe. Now I have to look carefully where I will grow as a player and as a person. I think there will be clearer. Within two weeks of the most," Origi was quoted by Liverpool Echo.
Recently the player already said that he was likely to move to the Premier League.
"As a little boy I always dreamed of playing in the Premier League but I'm still young and now I'm in an important tournament so I'm try to focus on the team. Then my entourage will see with [Lille] what I'll do," Origi said.
