Fenerbahce are showing interest in signing Liverpool striker Divock Origi this summer, according to Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur.
Konur suggests that the Super Lig side are keen to bring the Belgian in on a season-long loan, with a view to making his move a permanent one.
Liverpool are willing to listen to Fenerbache’s offer, as long as it includes an obligation to buy for £15m once the loan finishes, rather than just an option.
However, the Turkish side would face competition from Premier League sides Aston Villa, Newcastle and Brighton, who have all been touted with moves for the Belgian international.

If this deal was to go through, it would be a peculiar decision by Liverpool to let Origi leave Merseyside this summer at this time.
With striking options limited at Anfield, the 25-year-old still plays an important role in Klopp’s squad and provides great cover for Firmino and the other members in the front three.
Personally, I can’t see Liverpool letting the striker leave for as little as £15m, especially considering he is closing in on his prime years.
However, if Origi is searching for regular first-team football, he may choose to leave the Premier League champions this summer.
