Romano: Milan have ‘already made a proposal’ to Liverpool striker and are ‘confident’

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have put an offer on the table to sign Divock Origi when his contract with Liverpool expires, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Elliott Management and the Milan leaders always look at price-value ratio when examining potential signings and having an international-level striker potentially available without a transfer fee involved has resulted in the first exploratory talks between the parties, according to widespread reports.

Now, Romano is reporting that Milan have already made a bid to sign Divock Origi on a free transfer. He will not extend his contract with Liverpool, his current deal expires in June and the Rossoneri are pushing to complete the agreement.

The Sky journalist goes on to add that Milan are ‘confident’ of striking an agreement with the 26-year-old and his entourage and they continue to work on the deal. Origi has 5 goals in 533 minutes this season having struggled for playing time, but he has popped up in important moments such as scoring the winner at San Siro in the group stages.

    1. He is an athlete, used to high pressure and very physical style of play, intense training and doesn’t mind being in rotation. Ready whenever he is called upon. We can definitely use someone like him.

      On the other hand we have Belotti who plays for a mediocre club and fails to produce anything that can be considered constant or reliable. Plus he is made of glass, Milan Labs would probably cripple him for life, maybe even kill him in a matter of weeks. I love the guy, but no.

      1. Belotti was the top goalscorer in the league a few years back. He’s won the EURO with Italy.
        This year he’s been injured a lot but before that he consistently played almost every game. So not a Dybala- or Sensiesque injury history.

        1. He has won Euro by contributing zero, Italy would have wont it even if he wasn’t there. Same goes for Belotti, hey were literally useless and invisible. As for being a top scorer against relegation fodder and Serie A mediocrity… I thought our goal was playing in Europe, competing against the best of the best, but if Milan is still a team that only dreams of on of top 4 places in Serie Ass, then by all means, sing Belotti and Berardi.

          1. Not the choice I would have made. Stats by club (games/goals/assists): Wolfsberg (36/7/3); Lille (89/16/5); Liverpool (171/40/17). Not great.

            Compare with Belotti: UC AlbinoLeffe (39/14/0); Palermo (64/16/7); Torino (243/109/28). His Torino strike rate is just shy of 1 goal every other game. Think about what this would have been had he played with a better supporting cast. In contrast, Origi has score 1 goal every four games with LIVERPOOL. Oh well.

            Two things for perspective: 1. Milan is club football, not Italy, so not sure why Belotti’s Italy stats have anything to do with that. And guess who also has significantly lower average with his national team compared to club? Messi. Whose strike rate for Barca was .83, and whose strike rate for Argentina was “only” .51. Again, relatively speaking, the greatest if not one of the top 3 players of all time had reduced performance with his national team (and has only won one “minor” Copa America trophy with them).

      2. Hey Shiva….even I realised what you just wrote. Completely agree with you. Have a slight disappointing nod rejecting Belotti though.

    2. Because Belotti sucks, average player. His goal average during his career is around what Alessandro Matri had. You can find players like that for free.

      1. Belotti career club goal rate = .40. Origi career club goal rate = *.21*. And for perspective, Milan hero Filippo Inzaghi career club goal rate = ……… .46. Not that much higher than Belotti. Whelp.

    1. You’ll ruin milan with your ridiculous offer if you happen to be in Maldini shoes. Origi is certainly a fine reinforcement

  1. I prefer origi to belloti.. Origi is younger has more champions league experience and he is a team player able to dribble score goal and make assists… plus is not injury prone above all he’s coming from Liverpool that plays similar style of football and more aggressive… He will add champions morale to the team with 26 years old that’s a striker pick

  2. Belloti sucks injury prone and past his prime… Scamacca or isak…… But origi is not bad for free transfer with champions league experience

  3. The only way this makes sense to me is if Origi AND Belotti BOTH arrive, with Origi seen more as the RW reinforcement we also need. Keep in mind (I have to repeat this all the time) that we’re still subject to an FFP agreement with UEFA, that we didn’t actually meet the terms (yes because if Covid) and maybe instead of deciding to ban us from Europe (a catastrophe) UEFA saw how much good progress we have done and decided to extend the examination period by a year. Meaning that we have money to spend, but not enough to actually buy and RW, CM and CB. So all the money is going to CB and CM. Meaning Origi and Belotti are both a possibility. Stay tuned.
