AC Milan closing in on free transfer for Origi

AC Milan are favourites to sign Liverpool striker Divock Origi on a free transfer this summer when his contract expires, according to Sky Italy.

The 26-year-old has scored iconic goals during his time at Anfield but has made just five substitute appearances in the Premier League this season and Serie A leaders Milan are now close to an agreement with the player, who will be a free agent from June 30.

Milan are looking for a young and reliable forward for next season, considering their forwards Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Olivier Giroud will turn 41 and 36 respectively this year, and could seal a deal with Belgium international Origi within the next week.

Should Origi leave Liverpool at the end of this season, he will be remembered as a player who scored dramatic, crucial goals during his time at the club.

His most important contribution was to score twice, including the winner, in Liverpool's remarkable 4-0 turnaround victory over Barcelona in their Champions League semi-final second leg in 2019, before striking again in the 2-0 win over Tottenham in the final.
