Tottenham Hotspur will look to beat Premier League rivals Liverpool to a deal for Belgium forward Divock Origi.

The 19-year-old Lille striker impressed during the World Cup and has since been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Spurs and Liverpool understood to be his most likely destinations.

Origi was used sparingly by Lille in Ligue 1 last term but still scored five league goals in 12 starts.

The 6ft hitman was preferred to Romelu Lukaku in Belgium's 1-0 quarter-final defeat by Argentina and made two starts and three substitute appearances for the Red Devils at the World Cup.

Ostend-born Origi scored his first goal for Belgium in the 1-0 group stage victory over Russia.
