Turkish giants enter negotiations with Liverpool for £12m star striker

Besiktas have entered negotiations with Liverpool for their out-of-favour striker Divock Origi.

We recently reported that Liverpool are prepared to offload the Belgium international this summer.

Meanwhile, the Turkish outlet Fotomac claims that Besiktas officials are already in talks with Liverpool for Origi.

Per the source, the Black Eagles have discussed the possibility of signing Origi during negotiations for Mignolet.

Fotomac goes onto state that Besiktas want to sign Origi on a season-long loan.

However, according to SkySports, Liverpool are only interested in selling Origi on a permanent deal this summer.

Origi spent last season on loan with Bundesliga giants Wolfsburg.

The 23-year-old provided two assists and scored six goals in 31 Bundesliga appearance.

Origi made the move to Liverpool from Lille for £12 million back in 2014 and has played a total of 77 games for the Merseyside based club.

Besiktas are keen to bolster their attacking options after selling star striker Cenk Tosun to Everton in January.
