Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur claims Fenerbahce are interested in signing Liverpool striker Divock Origi, and that they’ve opened talks with the Premier League champions.
Konur reports Fenerbahce sporting director Emre Belozoglu has held discussions with Liverpool officials with regards to loaning Origi. The Merseyside club are reportedly open to the idea as long as there’s an agreement on a €15m mandatory redemption clause.
Konur hasn’t given any information whether Fenerbahce will pursue the deal or not, following Liverpool’s counteroffer, but he does say Newcastle United, Fulham and Brighton are also interested in signing the 25 year old.
Fener are in the market for a striker after selling Vedat Muriqi to Lazio for a fee reported to be in the region of €20m, and it seems Origi is one of the players they are currently looking at.
He made 41 appearances for Liverpool in all competitions last season, scoring six goals, and his contract at Anfield will expire at the end of June 2024.
