Besiktas are in negotiations with Liverpool over a potential move for Divock Origi, according to Turkish news outlet Fotomac.
The 23-year-old forward moved to Anfield in 2014 and has gone on to make 51 appearances for the club, scoring 12 goals and registering four assists.
The Belgium international spent last season out on loan Wolfsburg where he netted six times in 31 games for the German club.

Origi has one year left on his current deal at Liverpool, and if they loan him out for the season, he will be able to walk away on a free next summer.
Jurgen Klopp is right to be looking for a permanent transfer as it’s clear the 6ft 1in tall Origi isn’t part of his long-term plans and a loan wouldn’t benefit the club at all.
The only problem is Liverpool finding someone who will pay anything close to the reported £27million they want for the Belgium international.
If someone does they should shake their hand off, but it’s highly likely they’ll have to lower their demands as it’s not worth him sitting around for a year and leaving for nothing.
