According to reports in the Turkish media, as cited by Rousing The Kop, Super Lig club Fenerbahce are looking to make Liverpool lower their asking price for the out of favour forward Divock Origi. The 23-year-old has lost his place at Anfield and is set to be a free agent next season.
The Reds have put a price tag of £26m on the Belgian striker and are looking to cash in on him. The player has only twelve more months left on his contract at Anfield and it does not look like that he is going to get a place on the team sheet this season.
Liverpool have a very strong attacking lineup at their disposal and have some of the best attackers in the history of Premier League plying their trade for them. The Reds made it through to the Champions League final in the last term given their brilliant attacking prowess and there is no wonder that Jurgen Klopp is going to stick to his preferred trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to lead the attack this time as well.
This has made Fenerbahce hopeful of getting their hands on the 23-year-old Belgian striker this summer but it seems that the Turkish giants might not be willing to meet the price the Reds have put on him. They are, reportedly, now urging Liverpool to lower the asking price for Origi so that they can get him out of the Merseyside club.
As per reports, the Turkish giants’ initial interest was to bring the player on loan but as Liverpool want to let Origi leave on a permanent basis, a lower price tag might help them trigger his release clause, offering him an escape route out of Anfield.
