Fenerbache are reportedly urging Liverpool to reconsider their £26m valuation of Divock Origi as the Super Lig outfit looks to sign him in the next three weeks.

Funnily enough, the strongest area of Jürgen Klopp’s squad is his forward line, with Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and Robert Firmino his first choice front three, with Daniel Sturridge and Xherdan Shaqiri in reserve.

The quality available in forward areas means that Danny Ings has already joined Southampton, Lazar Markovic has no chance of starting in even the domestic tournaments and Divock Origi is forced to leave to forge a career elsewhere.

And according to reports from Turkey, with Fenerbache pushing hard for the Belgian to join them this summer, they have reached out to Liverpool to reconsider over the player’s £26m price tag.

Turkish Football reports that with Fenerbache keen on signing Origi, their preference would be to get him on loan but Liverpool want to sell given that 23-year-old only has 12 months remaining on his contract.

The Yellow Canaries are willing to sign him on a permanent basis under the right circumstances and this would involve Liverpool lowering their asking price.

The Turkish outfit will wait until the European transfer window is close to ending to try and force Liverpool’s hand. Fenerbache cannot offer anywhere near to the £26m being demanded due to Financial Fair Play regulations.
