Report: Liverpool in talks with Fenerbahce for Origi
Talks between Liverpool and Fenerbahce have been progressing well over a sale for Divock Origi, according to Fotospor.
The Super Lig side have been trying to sign the ‘unreal’ Reds ace all summer.
The Fenerbahce club president’s plane is currently in Liverpool, according to the publication.
Selahattin Baki has been in negotiations with Michael Edwards in Istanbul due to quarantine fears. Meanwhile, president Ali Koc has been in discussions with Peter Moore.
Talks are said to be progressing very quickly and positively for the centre-forward.
But the Turkish giants are not the only side in for Origi, with Liverpool also in talks with Russian clubs.
Should Liverpool sell Origi to Fenerbahce?
This summer’s transfer window may well be regarded as underwhelming by many Liverpool supporters.
There was an inability to bring in another attacker despite the exit of Xherdan Shaqiri.
Meanwhile, Gini Wijnaldum left without a replacement. Both deals beg questions over Liverpool’s transfer policy.
With the window having closed on Tuesday, should Liverpool be selling Origi to Fenerbahce without the ability to sign a replacement? The answer remains no.
For all his inconsistencies, failure to replace the former Anderlecht man will leave the Reds weaker.
Just one injury to any one of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane or Diogo Jota would be devastating.
Jurgen Klopp does not want to be in a position where he has to entrust youngsters.
He attempted that last season, and the effects were almost devastating to the club’s bid to qualify for the Champions League.
