Turkish clubs set to move for Origi


Fenerbahce and Besiktas are both interested in signing Liverpool’s Divock Origi.

The SuperLig pair are both keen to explore the opportunity to take the Belgian international to Turkey this Summer as Jurgen Klopp considers whether he wants to keep him in the squad for the new season.

Besiktas are only considering a loan bid at present, which Fenerbahce are also interested in – but they are also willing to consider making an offer to sign him on a permanent deal.

Rob Segal, Origi’s agent, is reported to have already met with Fenerbahce’s sporting director, and former Liverpool employee, Damien Comolli to see what kind of offer is on the table for his client.

Fotomac are claiming that Liverpool would be prepared to consider a deal to sell Origi before the new campaign begins, but are also prepared to mull over letting him move on temporarily if no acceptable bid is received.

Origi spent last season on loan with German club VfL Wolfsburg, where he managed to score just six goals despite being a regular for the Bundesliga outfit.

He has since returned for preseason duty on Merseyside and played a part in the friendly wins over Chester and Tranmere Rovers in the past week.
