Besiktas received some good and bad news in their pursuit of Liverpool forward Divock Origi.
The Reds are prepared to offload Origi over the summer transfer window but will only accept a straight sale according to Sky Sports.
Per the source, Liverpool will not accept a loan offer for the 23-year-old.
Sources close to Besiktas have revealed to Turkish-Football that the club are keen on a temporary move for Origi.
The Black Eagles have met with the Belgium striker’s representatives over a potential move.
Besiktas would be unable to match the Reds £26m valuation [Mirror] for the striker.
The Super Lig side will urge Liverpool to reconsider and are prepared to wait until the end of the transfer window if the Premier League outfit have not found a suitor.
Fenerbahce are also interested but like Besiktas want a loan deal.
Fotomac reported on July 12th that a meeting was held in Istanbul.
Fenerbahce basketball coach Zeljko Obradovic’s agent Alex Raskovic visited Istanbul recently with his partner Rob Segal.
Segal was introduced to the Yellow Canaries sporting director Damien Comolli.
Comolli was reportedly told a move could be ‘possible’.
Origi is unlikely to feature for Liverpool next season if he does end up staying and has also been linked with Valencia and Watford.
Bundesliga outfit Wolfsburg loaned him last season where he scored seven goals in 24 starts.
In total Origi has scored 12 goals in 51 appearances for Liverpool but has fallen behind Roberto Firmino, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke in the pecking order.
