Divock Okoth Origi (born 18 April 1995) is a Belgian professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Liverpool and the Belgium national team. He is the son of former Kenyan professional footballer Mike Origi.

Origi began his career playing football at Genk’s youth academy where he spent nine years before signing for Lille in May 2010, aged 15.

On 24 January 2013, he was an unused substitute in Lille’s 3–1 away win over Plabennec in a 2012–13 Coupe de France match. Nine days later, he scored on his competitive debut for the senior Lille side, coming on as a substitute in the 69th minute for Ronny Rodelin and scoring to bring his side from 1–0 down against Troyes.

On 29 July 2014, Premier League club Liverpool announced that they had completed a £10 million transfer for Origi, who signed a five-year contract but was immediately loaned back to Lille for the 2014–15 season.

In his first match back in Lille, Origi scored his first goal of the new Ligue 1 season through a penalty against Caen to secure a 1–0 win for his side. This was after he had been brought down in the box by defender Dennis Appiah, who was sent off by the referee towards the 70th minute.

On 11 December 2014, as Lille lost 0–3 at home to VfL Wolfsburg to be eliminated from the Europa League group stage, Origi had a penalty saved by Diego Benaglio. On 15 March 2015, Origi scored a hat-trick for Lille in a 3–0 league win against Stade Rennais.

On 11 July 2015, Origi was named in Liverpool’s 30-man squad for their pre-season tour of Thailand, Australia and Malaysia. In his non-competitive debut for Liverpool, a pre-season friendly against Thai All-Stars on 14 July, Origi scored his first goal for the club in a 4–0 win.

His first competitive game for the team was on 12 September, replacing Danny Ings for the final sixteen minutes of a 3–1 loss at rivals Manchester United. Origi scored his first competitive Liverpool goals on 2 December, a hat-trick in a 6–1 away win over Southampton in the quarter-finals of the League Cup. Eleven days later, he scored his first Premier League goal, replacing the injured Dejan Lovren in the 79th minute and netting an added-time equaliser from outside the penalty area for a 2–2 draw against West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.

Origi was used predominantly as a substitute and Cup player at the start of the 2016–17 campaign. He scored his first goal of the season on 23 August 2016 in a 5–0 EFL Cup win over Burton. He scored his first League goal on 26 November, coming off the bench for the injured Philippe Coutinho to net the opening goal in a 2–0 win over Sunderland.

Origi made his international debut for Belgium in 2014, and was part of their team which reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup, during which he became the youngest goalscorer in Belgian World Cup history.
