Report: Milan forward linked with Steven Gerrard-coached Saudi Arabian club

By Euan Burns -

AC Milan forward Divock Origi could be a target for Saudi Pro League team Al-Ettifaq who are now being coached by Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard, a report claims. 

As has been reported on Twitter by Sacha Tavolieri, Al-Ettifaq are contemplating making a bid for the Belgian striker who Milan are very keen to sell this summer.

Origi joined Milan last summer on a free transfer from Liverpool and there were hopes that he would rival Olivier Giroud for the main striker role throughout the campaign.

That is not how things panned out as he spent much of the campaign injured, and then even when he was fit, his impact was almost non-existent.

For that reason, Milan would like to turn a profit on him and Gerrard could create that opportunity. There is no official bid from the Saudi Pro League team but were one to arrive, Milan would likely respond very quickly.
