Liverpool Demand £26m For Striker But Can Only Find Clubs Willing To Loan

Liverpool are prepared to sell Divock Origi this summer but are failing to find teams prepared to match their £26m asking price.

Watford have been closely linked with Origi but the Mirror report the newly promoted Premier League side do not want to buy the striker, they want him on loan.

Origi is likely to leave over the summer after falling further down the pecking order.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has hinted that Daniel Sturridge will be given another chance next season and Dominic Solanke remains in the picture.

Origi would be expected to struggle for playing time next season.

Besiktas and Fenerbahce have also expressed an interest in the Belgium forward.

Sources close to Besiktas revealed to Turkish-Football that Origi is a name on their shortlist.

The Black Eagles have made signing a striker a priority this summer but are operating on a tight budget and therefore pushing for a loan move.

Turkish sports paper Fotomac reported on July 12th that a meeting was setup in Istanbul by Fenerbahce basketball coach Zeljko Obradovic.

Obradovic’s agent Alex Raskovic visited Istanbul recently with his partner Rob Segal, who was introduced to Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli.

Origi spent last season on loan at Wolfsburg where he scored six goals and provided one assist.

The Belgium international has 12 months remaining on his contract but has yet to be offered a new deal.
