Turkish Super League outfit Besiktas are reportedly eyeing a transfer deadline day move for Liverpool attacker Divock Origi.

The Belgium international spent last term on loan at French League side VfL Wolfsburg and scored six goals from 31 appearances for the club.

He was excluded from the Red Devils team that won bronze medal after the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia owing to his disappointing outing at the Bundesliga side last season.

The 23-year-old's chances of breaking into Jurgen Klopp's squad this season will be tough after the arrival of Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City this summer.

Besiktas might be forced to sign the forward on a season long loan owing to their current financial problems.

According to Liverpool Echo, Origi will only leave if a club meets the Reds £27 million asking price, with Liverpool keen to make a return on the striker.
