The Belgian forward is struggling for game time under Jurgen Klopp but Galatasaray are reportedly offering him a chance to shine in Turkey.

Divock Origi of Liverpool looks on during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester City at Anfield on October 7, 2018 in Liverpool, England.

Turkish Football are reporting that Galatasaray are strongly considering Divock Origi as their replacement for Bafetimbi Gomis, who moved away in the summer.

The Frenchman has left a 29-goal hole in the side with his departure and Origi is seen as possibly the man to fill it - a tall order but one that the Belgian once looked up to.

 

10 goals in his debut season at Anfield were followed up by 11 in the next, although inconsistency has meant that Origi never nailed down regular game time.

A loan move to Wolfsburg was supposed to give him a chance to find some but the team was in no shape to offer a good look at him as they struggled to 16th place in the Bundesliga.

Galatasaray, however, may be the right side for Origi to find the consistency that he sorely needs.

As the reigning Turkish champions, Galatasaray are not looking likely to struggle this year and with the likes of Garry Rodrigues, Younes Belhanda, and Sofiane Feghouli providing the creativity, Origi would have a golden opportunity to show what he can do.

He may not be able to get the minutes or the chances at Anfield, but moving to Turkey on a loan deal could be the ideal chance to really show what he can do.
