Liverpool rejects Galatasary’s bid for out of favour Origi

Liverpool have reportedly turned down an offer from Turkish giant Galatasary to sign Belgian striker with Kenyan roots Divock Origi.

According to ESPN English football website, Liverpool rejected Galatasary’s bid ahead of the January transfer window.

The reports claim that Liverpool are so much willing to loan out the 23-year-old next although they want him to do his loan time with an English Premier League club.


Coach Jurgen Klopp reported still harbours much hope in the young striker, his failure to impress from his loan spell last season with German side Wolfsburg notwithstanding.

The German coach now wishes to loan the out favour striker to an English club.

This means that Italian giants AC Milan, who are also reportedly interested in Origi, have to turn their search elsewhere.


The news would be good to Wolverhampton Wanderers who were previously linked to Origi and could now rejoin the race to sign him on loan.

A few months ago, Origi’s father, former Harambee Stars skipper Mike Okoth, revealed that his son received so many offers after the conclusion of last season, but he couldn’t leave because most of the interested clubs failed to meet Liverpool price tag for the player.
