Origi exit rumours, internationals yield goal & minor injury – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool players are off on international duty this week – so a few youngsters are doubtless getting the chance to impress Jurgen Klopp. Meanwhile, the end of the transfer window doesn’t mean the end of the rumours.


Origi set for Super Lig?

The Reds won’t be able to replace anybody else who goes down injured or leaves on late deals, but Divock Origi could still get an Anfield exit.

That’s according to rumours in Turkey, who say the Belgian striker is wanted by Fenerbahce and that the Reds will not name him in their Premier League squad this season.

No mention of a fee involved, but they have a plane on standby, are in the final round of negotiations and…talking to Peter Moore, apparently.

Something is off, but it might not be Origi!
