Turkish giants Fenerbahce are leading the race to sign striker Divock Origi from Liverpool.
Origi is keen on more game time with Euros coming up in 2021 something that he has not been guaranteed at his current club.
Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur now reports that Fenerbahce is leading the race for the services of the Belgian despite interest from clubs in England that includes Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Brighton and Fulham.
Leeds were also linked with the frontman last month but the Turkish giants are promising to have him on loan something that his other suitors doesn’t want to guarantee.
Liverpool is willing to let Origi leave providing Fenerbahce pay a loan fee and for the deal to include a mandatory obligation to buy clause.
The striker was only able to muster up four goals in 28 Premier League appearances for Liverpool last season, although only seven of those came from the start.
The return of Rhian Brewster at the club has complicated things for Origi as it is believed that Klopp plans to give the youngster more time as he is seen as a natural replacement for Roberto Firminho.
Brewster scored 11 goals in 22 Championship games for Swansea and was one of the brightest players in the club’s preseason preps.
