As you know, Divock Origi is nearly out of contract at Liverpool and Milan are doing their best to sign him on a free.

However, because of his contractual situation at Anfield, any club outside of England can approach him to discuss a potential free transfer, which is what Fenerbahçe are said to have done.

That’s according to Takvim, who state that the Liverpool player’s contract ‘will not be renewed’ and ‘the Belgian striker will be transferred to Europe’.

The idea of a transfer was ‘recommended’ during the trip to England taken by Fenerbahçe’s president Ali Koç, leading to ‘several meetings’ being held between the Turkish side and Origi’s agents.

In fact, these talks led to a three-year contract being bought up, which is a shorter term than what Milan are said to have offered him.

While there have been many stories about him going to Italy, there is also a need to evaluate which step will be best for him going forward.

The forward needs game time, something he really isn’t getting at Liverpool, and the striker will want to be in Roberto Martinez’s plans for the World Cup in Qatar.

His next move after Liverpool will be crucial to this, and if he can get guaranteed game time at Fenerbahçe, where he would undoubtedly be a star player, then perhaps this could be better for him than Milan.
