Fenerbahçe and Liverpool remain deadlocked over the possible transfer of Divock Origi for £26m, according to AKSAM.
However, The Turkish club hope to persuade Liverpool by offering a rental formula. It is believed that the 26-year old is pushing for a move after a disappointing pre-season.
Fenerbahçe’s sporting director, Damien Comolli, and Liverpool continue to have significant disagreements over the potential size and structure of any fee.
Liverpool and Michael Edwards have remained firm to insist that they are unwilling to agree to a deal, unless the £26m price tag is met. Whilst this may seem an ambitious fee, an inflated market and young striker with great potential makes a deal possible.
If Origi’s future does lie away from Anfield, then it is clear that any interested club will have to meet Liverpool’s valuation of the player. Although Klopp is prepared to see him move on, he has previously spoke of how he is unwilling to see his players sold under market value.
Although Origi was reportedly a primary target for Fenerbahçe’s manager, Philip Cocu, their attention has now turned to Leicester’s Islam Slimani and Tottenham’s Vincent Janssen.
