TMW: Milan register interest in signing Liverpool striker on expiring contract

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have added Liverpool striker Divock Origi to their list of potential but they face competition domestically, according to a report.

According to TMW, Origi has returned to being an attractive name for Serie A clubs given that his contract expires at the end of the season and he probably wants to secure a more prominent role if he is to switch clubs, given he has made 10 appearances this season with 5 goals and 2 assists.

Milan are interested in the Belgium international as they are looking for a player to eventually replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and he scored against the Rossoneri on Tuesday night during the 2-1 win for Klopp’s side.

The other club that are keen on the 26-year-old are Atalanta, especially if Luis Muriel decides to change clubs. For the Bergamo club, the main obstacle is represented by salary as Origi earns approximately €4m net per season which falls outside their parameters.

      God bless you for this. Clueless management. Milan better start spending money on good signings if truely they want to win scudetto

      This site is a joke! Same they said for Beto, same for Scamacca, same last year for Raspadori, same for Vlahovic, same for half players who scored against Milan in Europa league last year, same for Luis Diaz of Porto who scored in San Siro, same for every good defender who can hault a 41 yo Ibra. Really, I mean journalists need to make a living too, but with some limits on their bullshit!

        Because this is how it works.
        You talk to many players even just to show others that you have options.
        Maldini himself talked about this in interview.
        RAIOLA has used this tactics against us with Donnarumma.

    How is he supposed to replace Ibrahimovic with his woeful goalscoring record?

  3. RocketRacoon says:

    Well he has played very little this season but his stats are not so bad, 5 goals and 2 assists in 393 minutes played across all competitions. He scores or assists every 56 minutes. He’s 26 years old so he’s not done. Also, let’s be real, Milan can fight for scudetto signing players from championship, tbh, they play an entire different sport in the premier league right now. Considering the current level of the Serie A, I actually think it wouldn’t be that bad, far from my first choice, though, but okay. I mean, who really thinks Origi wouldn’t be an improvement over Pellegri, lol

      Quality wise, serie a and la liga are actually “close” to the prem. However, the premier league is ridiculously energetic and physical, and so lots of teams that don’t play against them often get completely overwhelmed.

      1. Stam says:

        Ligue 1 is more psychical than Prem, according to players.

        There are good articles on how Prem is produced in a way to feel the game is faster, like camera angles, lighting etc. Intresting stuff.

        Leicester and Tottenham most likely will be eliminated now. Liverpool will have to be rebuild in 2 years, even with success lots of players want to leave Chelsea.

        Revenue difference is huge, sport difference is smaller. But tbh aside of tv deals and oil money, prem IS better managed (Liverpool, ManU and Tottenham grew revenues crazy last decade – and glazers took out more money that they invested!)

    Transfer strategy for teams – play the ones you might want to sell against Milan, help them score (or wait for Milan to mess up and have them score)… Voila! Transfer target. (Though Maldini did say only 10% of transfer rumors are true.)

  5. Stam says:

    Maldini did say that but the hunt for CB instead of other more needed positions is prob true.

    Which means unless miracle happens and AC will come here from Chelsea, we will overpay – LOTS of good, young or prime defenders end their contracts in 2023. So we could pay just minimum in the summer for great players (Bremer, Badiashille, hell even Soyuncu since we discussed Prem)
    I worry we will get Felipe, guy probably even worse than Romagnoli – but playing in worse team, so he looks relatively good.
