MN: Present provides difficulties as Milan turn to Liverpool man to safeguard the attack

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan appear to have made their decision to sign Divock Origi for the centre-forward role and the reasons for doing so are several-fold, a report claims.

MilanNews recalls how the weight of the entire attack has been on Olivier Giroud’s shoulders since 23 January, when Zlatan Ibrahimovic was injured in the match against Juventus. The Frenchman has played each of the last 11 games between Serie A and the Coppa Italia and while his condition has been reassuring, at almost 36 years old he cannot be expected to start so often.

The January signing of Marko Lazetic who is only 18 and the physical problems Ante Rebic has had means that there simply has been no alternative, which has prompted the management to move ahead of the summer.

The management have turned to Divock Origi who is a player that is younger than the other options in the squad currently (bar Lazetic), has experience in the biggest games (he scored in a Champions League final) and is looking for a more prominent role to finally show off with ample playing time.

The negotiations with the player’s entourage are at an advanced stage and there is an agreement in principle, so the Belgian should be the first reinforcement in view of next season.

  1. This guy will be such a flop,it doesnt go in my mind why everyone is amazed by this guy ,last 2 season together he collected only 15 matches mostly from bench,scored 5 goals,he plays average 10 matches per season,in low bundesliga where every serious attacker scores 20+ goals per season,he scored 6 , even andre silva scored 30 goals,and they say he is better option than belotti…come on guys has been more days in ambulance than he was on training pitch,his best season was in poor french league which was even more poor back in the days when he played for lille scorin 8 goals in 35 matches….what a joke,the only condition he meets to join us is that he played for lille and soon we can name us ac lillan

  2. Even if he flops we can still sell him at least €7m next season to a Ligue 1 club or even a Jupiler pro league club and make s capital gain of about €3m. So yes, sign him.
