CM.it: Milan expected to sign forward Klopp branded as ‘world class’ on five-year deal

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan are closing in on their first signing to reinforce the attack ahead of 2022-23 as Divock Origi should arrive from Liverpool, a report claims.

Origi arrived in the Premier League in the summer of 2015 from Lille and though his starts have been few and far between, there is no doubting that he has had a big impact under Jurgen Klopp. He scored in the Champions League semi-final comeback against Barcelona, netted against Spurs in the final and has a number of other vital goals.

Klopp himself sang the praises of the Belgian after he scored in the derby against Everton yesterday: “Divock is a world class player and wherever he goes I know he will do very well. What happened to us in the second half with Everton would not have been possible without him on the pitch.”

Calciomercato.it report that Milan are just waiting for the final details of the agreement to be resolved and then everything should be in place, with a deal expected to be reached by the end of the weeks.

It is a department that certainly needed a big signing and the report adds that it is likely that the agreement will be a five-year contract, but for the official figures it will be necessary to wait.

    1. Good times, good times. Kalinic. An experienced striker as the coach (Montella?) said when getting him. Experienced maybe but other than that: totally useless.

      Origi = Kalinic 2.0? At least he won’t be remembered like Inzaghi & Shevchenko – that’s for sure.

    2. 😂😂 I have a feeling he’s gonna perform wonders at Milan just like Lukaku did at Inter. Let’s hope he would do well for our beloved club.

    3. His experience,physical,versatile. His free transfer too. He is familiar with gegenpressing with Juergen Klopp mean he don’t need adaptation to Pioli high pressing system’. While other striker like belotti/scamacca never play on CL or world cup ( no experience on big game) ,unproven with big club’,need adaptation to high press. Pioli system’ need physical and stamina ( junior and lazetic need to train until they meet standard physical in earlier join)

  1. People are so ignorant on Origi. He is an EXCELLENT player. Did anyone watch Liverpool match yesterday? The match completely changed when he entered the match. He helped set up the first goal and he scored the second.
    His goals per minute and goals per shot stats are amazing. Among the best in all top 5 leagues in Europe. He has scored big goals for Belgium in World Cup and Euro; he has scored big goals in big games (winning goal in Champions League final!) for Liverpool. He should’ve left there a couple of years ago; but finally he’s gotten fed up with sitting on bench behind such superstars like Salah, Mane, Jota, Firmino… he wants to play more minutes and at Milan, he will… and he will score many, many goals for us. You will see. Mark my words.

  2. I think he will do well. Just because he doesn’t start for Liverpool doesn’t make him a bad player. Liverpool one of the best teams in the world. The Prem is an incredibly strong league. Being a reserve for a top team is no bad thing. For example Ruben Loftus-Cheek for Chelsea. Squad player. England international. Earns 7.8M a year, compared to our highest earner which is Ibra on 7M.
