TMW: Milan outcast pushing for move as West Ham are interested

By Isak Möller -

Divock Origi is no longer part of the project at AC Milan and the Belgian is destined to leave the club this summer. However, finding him a new club has been far from easy as he only wants a return to the Premier League. 

Origi scored just two goals for Milan last season and given that he earns €4m per year net, the Rossoneri are far from happy with the signing. In fact, they are keen on offloading the 28-year-old this summer.

According to TuttoMercatoWeb, the striker has said no to Saudi Arabia (much to Milan’s dismay) and only wants a return to the Premier League. West Ham are keeping tabs on the situation after parting ways with Gianluca Scamacca and could perhaps make a move.

The report suggests that the situation has changed ‘in the last few hours’, with Origi getting closer to a return to England. It remains to be seen how much Milan can cash in from his departure but given that he arrived as a free transfer, they are not forced to collect a certain amount to avoid a loss.

  1. atleast 4m for his wage
    then he can go

    with origi gone we have to find 1 striker, and 1 backup that starts 4-6 games per season.
    or if pioli can adapt to false 9, then we have all we need a backup midfielder or left winger, depends on where we put pulisic. with this chukweze will be starting most of the games, which we wanted for his development

  2. We need to pay a tax penalty of about 2m if he only stays one season, so would be nice to at least cover that expense with a transfer fee. However we cannot be choosy with that situation.

  3. If West Ham are genuinely interested they’ll pay like 4mn or whatever, the fee won’t be a problem. And his wages are big for us but not really in EPL.

    It’s more the phrasing of this article. I don’t think Origi is pushing for anything, he seems quite happy to do a samu castillejo and just be benchwarmer collecting his wage.
