Turkish outfit Fenerbahce are one of five clubs reportedly in talks with Liverpool over signing striker Divock Origi.
Aston Villa, Newcastle, Brighton and Fulham are keen on Origi’s signature,
But Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur claims Fenerbahce have made the first move over the possibility of taking the Ivorian on loan.
Liverpool are open to letting Origi go providing Fenerbahce pay a loan fee and for the agreement to include a mandatory obligation to buy clause.
The 25-year-old is contracted to Anfield until 2024 and is valued at around £30m.
Konur claims Jurgen Klopp’s side would be prepared to let him go for just shy of £14m.
Fenerbahce would no doubt be charged a considerable sum initially to take Origi on loan and would almost certainly be required to pay his wages in full.
The Reds would also not allow Origi to leave without lining up an adequate replacement.
