AC Milan are looking at ways they can strengthen their attacking department within financial constraints and they are targeting a free transfer for a Liverpool striker, a report claims.
Milan are facing a crucial moment regarding how their centre-forward depth is structure given the doubts related to the future of Zlatan Ibrahimovic plus the fact Olivier Giroud will turn 36 this year while Marko Lazetic is just 18.
As reported by PianetaMilan (who cite Sky) the name of Andrea Belotti – who could come from Torino on a free transfer – is not the only one that Paolo Maldini and Ricky Massara are evaluating. In fact, Milan are probing the idea of signing Divock Origi whose deal with Liverpool will expire next June.
The player does not seem willing to renew, given the presence of Firmino and Diogo Jota which greatly reduces his playing time. However, there are a couple of doubts about the Belgian including the high salary he currently gets plus the competition from teams such as Atalanta and Napoli.
Still, Stefano Pioli and the Rossoneri management like the player and could make an effort to make a move for the 26-year-old, who scored the goal that sealed the Rossoneri’s elimination from the Champions League at San Siro.
