Fenerbahce have made a move for Liverpool forward Divock Origi according to the Fotomac newspaper.

Per the source, 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.

The basketball coach reportedly introduced Segal – who represents Divock Origi – to Fenerbahce sporting director Damien Comolli.

Talks were held and Comolli put forward a loan proposal.

Segal reportedly told Comolli, ‘it’s possible’.

The report also claims that Liverpool are open to Origi leaving on a temporary move and that the chances of this transfer going ahead are likely.

The Yellow Canaries are in desperate need of a new striker, Roberto Soldado is currently the only first-choice forward available.

Vincent Janssen returned to Tottenham following the end of this loan deal and Fernandao has already been sold.

Fenerbahce are not the only Super Lig side who are plotting a loan move for Origi.

Turkish-Football sources have revealed Besiktas also want the Belgium forward on a loan deal but Liverpool have yet to make a decision over their plans for Origi next season.

Jurgen Klopp recently revealed he has yet to decide what the future holds for Origi – and Daniel Sturridge.

“It’s how it is for all of them,” Klopp was quoted as saying in the Echo.

“They have all the quality, you can see that, they are all really good football players.

“The boys, we need them. We play the games, we have the training sessions, they are nice fellas so it’s nice to have them around and then let’s see how it fits at the end.

“But it’s all about the boys. My door is that wide open so why should I make a decision today?

“I watch the games, I lead the sessions and then I make a decision at a specific point, but that’s not today and it’s not next week so we have still time.

“Everybody has a place here. I would be really crazy if I would not give these boys a chance – they are fantastic players, they’ve played fantastic games, so we will see what happens.”
