Report: Fenerbahce want to sign Origi with Liverpool open to transfer of 26-year-old
Fenerbahce want to sign Liverpool ‘legend’ Divock Origi on a loan deal with the view to a permanent transfer this summer.
According to Fotomac, the Turkish giants will open talks with the Merseysiders soon.
Reports have claimed that the Reds are looking to sell the Belgium international this summer.
However, it seems as though he’s attracted suitors from the Super Lig with Fenebahce in the market for a new centre-forward. The club are said to be looking to part ways with all of their current number nines; Mbwana Samatta, Papiss Cisse and Mame Thiam.
Origi endured a tough season at Anfield last campaign, appearing just nine times in the Premier League. He scored just a single goal and registered two assists.
TBR View: Origi transfer to Fenerbahce long-overdue exit from Liverpool
A decent backup to Roberto Firmino needs to be one of the most crucial targets of this summer’s transfer window.
The north-west giants’ struggles with the Brazilian, and consequent, lack of faith in the Belgian speaks volumes.
Firmino himself has scored just one goal through a period of 18 Premier League games midway through last season. Yet Origi failed to make the starting XI, as a replacement for the under-performing South American.
Origi’s lack of consistency in front of goal last season really does beg a question. Why has he managed to last so long at Liverpool?
Interest from Fenerbahce is welcome news with Liverpool needing to more move on Origi in a crucial transfer.
Yes, Jurgen Klopp has proven successful, but, his belief in some of his bench players is baffling. Origi has never been a successful replacement for Firmino, especially over the course of the last year or so.
