Liverpool's Divock Origi wanted by Galatasaray in loan move - sources

Galatasaray want to sign Liverpool striker Divock Origi on loan in January, sources have told ESPN FC.

Sources said the Turkish club authorised an initial offer for Belgium international Origi through intermediaries.

They have approached Liverpool about signing him until the end of the season, with financial fair play rules meaning they would be unable to bring him in permanently.

Origi has struggled for playing time this season, managing just 11 minutes of first-team football and, with Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge ahead of him in the pecking order, his situation is unlikely to change.

Galatasaray are in desperate need of another striker, Eren Derdiyok the only out-and-out centre-forward in the first-team squad following the departure of Bafetimbi Gomis.

Head coach Fatih Terim has been playing winger Sinan Gumus and Everton loanee Henry Onyekuru, another wide player, as makeshift strikers on occasions this season.
