TMW: Maldini hoping to close deal soon and take a ‘Liverpool legend’ from Klopp

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are moving closer towards making Divock Origi their first new signing of the summer window and they would be taking one of Jurgen Klopp’s must trusted squad members, a report claims.

TMW writes how Origi is a player that Klopp has always esteemed highly even if he has regularly made him take a seat on the bench. Before the Champions League match they played against Genk back in 2019, a reporter was guilty of not having mentioned the Belgian forward among the best products of the club’s academy, with Klopp bringing this to his attention and branding Origi a ‘Liverpool legend’.

He arrived from Lille back in 2015 and it was the 2016-17 season that saw him start to show his potential as he scored 7 goals in 34 league appearances. To date he has 40 goals in 167 games overall, including a brace in the sensational comeback against Barcelona in the Champions League and a goal in the final against Spurs.

The 26-year-old could become a wild card of sorts for Milan as he is a natural centre-forward but can also occupy either wing. Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara aimed want him on a free transfer shot and aim to close soon.
