Besiktas looking to loan Liverpool forward Divock Origi

Besiktas are planning a move for Divock Origi.

British source claim that Besiktas are looking to loan Liverpool forward Divock Origi.

The 23-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.

The Belgium international was signed by Liverpool in July 2014 from Lille for a fee of 12.6 million euros. The 23-year-old has a contract until 2020 with the club.

Origi has played 77 times for Liverpool since signing from Lille, scoring 21 goals and creating 7 assists in that time.

He’s incredibly experienced for a 23-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.

As a member of Belgium national football team, Origi won 25 caps and he scored 3 goals.

Divock Origi is currently out of favor at Liverpool and could leave the club this winter.

Şenol Güneş wants to sign a new forward and Origi is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Belgium international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Güneş wants to target in the winter transfer window.

According to The Sun (via Fanatik), “Divock Origi is set to be offered a way out of Anfield by Turkish side Besiktas to end his Liverpool nightmare. The Belgian international has been frozen out of the side under Jurgen Klopp this season, with the striker yet to feature at all this campaign. Origi, 23, was allowed to find a new club in the summer upon finishing his loan spell with Wolfsburg, but chose to stay and fight for his place. But after being deemed as surplus to requirements and nowhere near the first team squad, the ex-Lille ace is believed to be pondering an exit away. According to Turkish news outlet Fanatik, Besiktas are ready to whisk him away on an initial loan spell, with an option to buy.”


Undoubtedly Origi would be a fantastic recruit for Besiktas.

Besiktas fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club in January.
