Report: Interesting development expected with £60,000-a-week Liverpool man in next few days
According to Fotomac, a surprise development is expected to happen with Divock Origi and Liverpool in the coming days.
What’s the story?
Well, the Turkish news outlet believe Fenerbahçe have made an offer for the £60,000-a-week forward.
Yesterday, Fotospor revealed that Fenerbahçe President Ali Koç had sent a plane to Merseyside, as talks with Michael Edwards were progressing well.
Now, Fotomac believe a surprise development could happen with Origi’s career in the next few days.
The 26-year-old was not named in Jürgen Klopp’s squad for the last two Premier League games against Burnley and Chelsea.
Even 18-year-old Harvey Elliott started against Chelsea, whereas Origi was nowhere to be seen as his future at Anfield looks increasingly uncertain.
One reason why Liverpool should sell Divock Origi
In truth, there are many reasons why Liverpool should sell the 29-cap Belgium international.
However, the main one is that his contract expires in June, so this is the last chance Liverpool will get to receive a fee for him.
The Reds paid £10m for Origi in 2014. It feels unlikely they’ll receive their money back, although anything is better than nothing.
In hindsight, Klopp should’ve parted ways with the former LOSC Lille striker ages ago while his value was high.
Holding onto Origi for too long, purely to use him as a backup, seems to have dented his confidence hugely.
Liverpool’s No.27 just can’t seem to make an impact from the bench anymore like he used to, effectively making his role redundant.
With just days left until Turkey’s transfer window closes, Liverpool must find a way to receive a fee for Origi before they lose him for free.
