Report – Newcastle Touted With Surprising Interest In Liverpool Striker

The Mirror is reporting that Fenerbahce have enquired about taking Liverpool striker Divock Origi on loan this season. However, they name a quartet of Premier League clubs including Newcastle as having an interest in the 25-year-old.

Newcastle have reportedly enquired about a loan move for Liverpool’s Rhian Brewster as well. Though, a decision on the 20-year-old’s future at Liverpool is up in the air at the moment. There have also been claims Brewster could be available for a permanent move at the hefty price tag of £25m.

Reports that Origi could also be on the move is surprising as he’s scored some crucial goals for Liverpool over the years and has gained a cult status amongst the fan base. However, he is not first-choice and made only 7 starts in the league last season and just 4 the season before.

The Mirror says the Belgian international could be open to a move away from Anfield for a chance at first-team football. According to claims from Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, Fenerbahce are the first to attempt to get the striker in.

Konur says that Liverpool could sanction a loan move for Origi if it included a loan fee as well as a mandatory purchase clause. The journalist’s claim that the transfer fee would be just £14m seems very low to us.

Origi has four years left on his current contract. He joined Liverpool from Lille in 2014 for around £11m. At Anfield, he’s made 140 appearances with 34 goals but has played second fiddle to Liverpool’s outstanding front three over the past few seasons.

The other Premier League clubs cited with an interest are Aston Villa, Brighton, and Fulham. We would think Newcastle would be a much more enticing destination that those three or Fenerbahce.

    He would be the best possible loan striker going. Without a doubt.

    Massive statement if we got him. Would surely have to go 442 in order to give him game time?

    @kilcline – I saw that earlier, there was also an interesting one from the Reubens a few days back too:

    Reuben Brothers
    Sep 9
    Richard Masters.

    We’re coming for you.

    Is Origi that good, a 1 in 4 striker – think thats a bout Gayles stats

    Obviously compared to Linton and Carroll he’s a positive goal machine.
    I mean the teams in for him are Villa/Brighton and Fulham who are hardly top drawer teams and all likely to be involved in relegation struggles this season ( although Brighton looked decent last night they still lost 1-3 )

    Catchy, you won’t get any logic on here Re Rafa. You would think he got us to Europe or an fa cup, the way people go on a bout him. Or that Bruce got us relegated. Instead, over 1 season, very familiar position and points. A minor inconvenience to the Bruce haters and rafa lovers.

    Rafa net spend 20 million per season
    Bruce net spend 60 million

    Football on display , often shite under both although Rafa with Almiron payed some cracking stuff / Bruce has probably had one or two decent games

    Bruce now has his own team, albeit last year he brought in 9 players either bought or loans at a cost of something like 80 million and probably the only success was ASM

    Well Mr Bruce, beating West Ham at there ground opening day was impressive.
    Now for our Achilles Heal, how we do against lower league teams in cup games we are meant to beat soundly.
    So let’s see if we can start our season with two on the trot, this is where managing the team and players is at its most importance, a loss would not be good. Howay the Toon.

    Would be interesting to see stats for Origi’s minutes/goal as I suspect most of his appearances were as sub.

    I’m no fan of Bruce but he’s done better than I expected, as for rafa, he’s had loads of money at other clubs and the football on display wasn’t much better than we witnessed here.

    Give rafa 500m and it’ll still be set up to not get beat, compact, nick a goal or 2

    Origi doesnt score because he doesnt get game time, he gets a few minutes at the end of matches here and there so it looks like he plays games but doesnt score many goals. When in fact he is a world class forward. Playing regularly he would get most teams 15-20 goals a season. He cant break into the team with those other 3 playing.

    Been awhile

    Got a nice first win in fantasy.
    Would be great to get any other further addition to our forward line Origi, Brewster, Nketiah any would be more than welcome.

    Tonight is a very tricky one for Bruce, I actually won’t be that gashed if we lose tonight as long as we get another 3 points this weekend. But would love another cup run like last season.

    I think it may have been you who gave me the following advice

    “Anyone cancelling sky my advice would be get a 4k firestick and pay for iptv will cost between £35/£60 a year but you get all 3pm kick offs for prem and championship plus all the pay per View fights you only need 8mb speed to run it so WiFi not really an issue you can also hot spot it through phone data”

    I’ve got myself an Amazon firestick – do you think that will do the job?

    The talks of someone like Loftus Cheek would be the best signing we could do, he can play anywhere almost in the midfield and no 10. Very talented player and could be used to upgrsde or for depth in many areas

    Mindshaft “Bruce now has his own team, albeit last year he brought in 9 players”

    Do you really believe that Bruce had any say in the signings made last Summer? He wasn’t appointed till mid-July.

    Mindshaft, he lost two strikers, got a useless Brazilian. Not his fault for that. What do u think he wud have preferred?? And he didn’t do the usual rafa politics either, and didn’t moan about avoiding relegation wud be a miracle. Maybe I’ll get the Madrid and napoli fans on who I met. Will let you know how they felt about him.

    It must annoy people that the duffer equalled the genius on all the main bases.

    RLC would be the perfect signing as he plays very direct with tonnes of energy and always looking to ping balls forward to the wingers and strikers. At the moment our midfielders play too deep.

    As for Origi hes a very good striker. Everytime I’ve seen him play he always scores. His stats arent as great as some strikers however its more down to gametime or playing as a sub.

    How about this suggestion, I would not bet against whoever this is posting on Twitter – been spot on so far.

    Imagine if the PL rejected the bid to show loyalty to BeIn, but then the courts have it overruled. So Qatar can’t accuse the PL of being disloyal, and the league gets new investment. Win/Win.

    Would be funny if that happened wouldn’t it, like it was part of a big plan.

    He’s scored almost every time I’ve watched him play, a few times when he’s come on as a late sub and only been on the putch 20 minutes or so. Finds useful spaces, strong and athletic, great for the PL and would be a quality signing.

    I’d take Origi in a heartbeat, scored some very important and quality goals for the ‘pool. Any young, exciting striker with potential would round off the window nicely for me. Think we have enough for the lofty heights of mid table for sure, but with last season’s luck (surely not again), could see us pushing on to at least scare those in 8th, even if momentarily. Should be a lot more exciting this season for sure.
