Liverpool’s Divock Origi has emerged as a target for Fenerbahçe.
Although the summer transfer window for the top five European leagues closed on Tuesday, the deadline day in Turkey is on September 8th, meaning the Süper Lig sides have a week’s time to carry out their business.
According to Fotospor, the Yellow Canaries have been after a new striker ‘all summer’ and the Reds player is now their firm candidate.
It’s claimed Fenerbahçe board member Selahattin Baki couldn’t travel to England to personal hold talks to sign the 26-year-old, but it’s said Baki is meeting Michael Edwards, the sporting director of the Merseyside club.
In addition to this, Fenerbahçe president Ali Koç ‘called Peter Moore’, although it’s important to note Moore has left his position at Liverpool as their CEO in August 2020, so whether they just have the wrong name or he only had Peter Moore’s number is unclear.
As per the report, the talks are ‘progressing very quickly and positively’ and Koç’s ‘plane is ‘waiting’ in Liverpool’, awaiting the outcome of the ‘final round of negotiations’ over signing the Belgium international.
Fenerbahçe are in a hurry to conclude Origi’s signing today, so that it allows them to include Origi in their Europa League squad.
