According to the story, Tottenham scouts are reportedly watching Origi in Brazil and have also phoned Lille asking the French club to quote their price for the 19 year old. Lille will be holding out for a £8m deal but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy, who is known to be a shrewd dealer in the transfer market could snatch the striker for as low as £5m.

Repeared failures from Roberto Soldado have prompted Spurs to find an alternative striker for the Spaniard and Origi’s dazzling talent looks to have attracted Tottenham. The teenager’s last gasp goal against Russia helped his national side to progress through to the round of sixteen.

Arsenal are also interested in the player who scored five goals in 38 appearances last season for Lille while Liverpool have also sent scouts to keep tabs on the striker’s situation. The Gunners are in the transfer market for a striker with manager Arsene Wenger desperate to sign a quality forward who can take teh pressure off Olivier Giroud up front. 

So who do you think will acquire the services of Origi in the summer? Let us know in comments below.

  1. Scored 5 goals in 38 games! Definitely sounds like the answer to Spurs scoring problems next year.
    Wow, do you get paid for this?

  2. I think Arsenal must be serious about all these names being said to be interested in joining Arsenal.

    What Arsenal need is another player instead of Sagna, and a cover for the Mer & Kos. In mid field there is enough cover. The other item on the Adenda should be a goalkeeper and obviously a goal scoring forward.J Campbell has shown enough promise.

    What Mr Wenger should do is to limit the number of games a player should play, say 30 competitive games in a season and this could a chance for players to have a rest and at the same time give the fringe players a chance to be able to play in competitive
    games.
    With all the cash in hand a bonus should be given to every player a bonus after every competitive game whic will create more competition.

    I am not a manager but at least I know how to count from 1 to 10, keep the players happy with the maximum games of 30 they have to play even for the sake of fighting against injuries and staleness by being off form in a seasons in the cae of Arsenal who are year in year out playing four competitions.

    I a looking forward for the coming season and hope at least
    to win more trophies particularly the European Cup.
