It is now just a matter of time before AC Milan welcome Divock Origi as their first signing of the summer window, according to a report.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews), just a few details are still to be resolved before the agreement is closed and the free transfer of the Liverpool striker should be confirmed. Not only that, but signing a player for the striker role on a free shows how Milan intend to make real investments in other departments.
Origi has decided to change clubs before he is labelled as a ‘striker unable to score’ as per the report because Jurgen Klopp has almost exclusively used him as a bench or rotation player, severely limiting his minutes.
Origi likes Italy, he likes San Siro (where he scored to knock Milan out of the Champions League) and is intrigued by the project that the club are carrying out. He is expected to sign a four-year deal at €4m net per season, joining Ibrahimovic and Giroud (40 and 35 years old) to add youth but also immense experience to the striker department.
