Journalist: Liverpool attacker has “found an agreement” with European giant – 3 year contract worth €3.5m/season

Divock Origi has reportedly reached an agreement with AC Milan as his Liverpool contract is set to expire in the summer after an emotional career at Anfield.

The Belgian has been an incredible player for Liverpool and his contributions to Jurgen Klopp’s Reds will never be forgotten.

From kickstarting the 4-3 comeback against Borussia Dortmund in 2016 to starting and completing the most iconic remontadas in history against Barcelona, Origi is the definition of a cult hero.

Ice in his veins, Liverpool fans have never questioned his ability to win a game at the death.

He’s done it this season, winning a seemingly unwinnable game against Wolves at the Molineux with a 94th-minute swivel-and-shoot to send the travelling Kop into delirium.

With his contract set to expire in the summer, his agent has been working to organise his next move and he seems set to join AC Milan.

According to Tancredi Palmieri, Origi and Milan have “found an agreement” worth €3.5million per season.

It’s a fitting move for the 26-year-old, who still has a lot to offer and could well turn out to be a fantastic player for the Rossoneri.

Milan lead Serie A by two points and are fighting to win their first league title since 2011 and adding Origi to their ranks, with Olivier Giroud, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Raphael Leao already at the club, would be a fine move.

He might not get much game time at Anfield but that’s to be expected given the competition.

Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino have historically made it impossible for him to find a start regularly while adding Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz to the mix makes things that much harder.

Takumi Minamino’s arrival made it so that Origi even had to fight for his place in the Reds’ domestic cup games but his return this season has been very decent.

According to Transfermarkt, Origi has 5 goals and 3 assists from just 533 minutes this season and so with regular game time, he could force his way back into Belgium’s World Cup squad looking ahead to the Qatar finals later this year.

I know I speak for every Liverpool when I say we wish him nothing but the best.
