Divock Origi had a very difficult first season at AC Milan and the decision was made to offload him in the summer, but things have not exactly gotten better for him.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) recalls this morning that Origi was loaned out to Nottingham Forest in the summer with an option to buy included, but so far his season has been rather disappointing for the Premier League side.
The Belgian centre-forward has in fact played just 152 minutes in the league and the risk is that if things were to continue to go so badly, the former Liverpool man could return to Milan at the end of the season.
To sign him permanently, Forest would have to pay €5m. This is an affordable sum, especially for a Premier League club, but the Midlands side not seem at all satisfied with Origi’s performances and therefore they could decide to send him back to Milanello in the summer.
Moreover, there is some uncertainty about Forest’s immediate future, given they are hovering above the relegation zone and their head coach Steve Cooper is under big pressure.
