Liverpool striker Divock Origi has been closely linked with an Anfield exit after struggling for playing time this season.

Turkish-Football revealed that Galatasaray have expressed an interest in the Belgium international and would be keen on a loan move in January.

Turkish sports newspaper Fotomac have followed up the story with a development.

Per the source, the Reds would be prepared to let Origi leave over the winter transfer window if they manage to land a deal for Napoli forward Lorenzo Insigne.

Galatasaray are reported to be monitoring the situation closely and are of the view that they would be able to sign Origi should the Insigne move go ahead.

Were Insigne to join it would push Origi further down the pecking order but even if the Italian does not join it does not look like the Belgium forward has a long-term future at the club.

Origi has yet to play a single Premier League game this season and does not appear to be part of head coach Jurgen Klopp’s plans.

Galatasaray are currently first in the Super Lig and competing in the Champions League.

The 23-year-old would be able to play in the competition for the Lions should they make the next round if he does join as he has not featured for Liverpool in the competition this season.

Origi was actually named in the 25-man Liverpool Champions League squad but has not made the matchday squad this term.
