Divock Origi is closing in on a summer switch to AC Milan with his Liverpool contract set to expire at the end of the season.
The Belgian has been a phenomenal player for the Reds and will leave fans with more than a few iconic memories.
For many supporters, he’s regarded as a club legend.
For others, he’s a cult hero.
What is inarguable is that very few players have made an impact on a club like he has and with Origi also involved in community outreach with the University of Liverpool, he’s earned the love of the city.
According to Corriere dello Sport, his move to Milan is not confirmed but it’s all but guaranteed.
The claim that Origi has had ‘has had several proposals’ from many different clubs but he’s already comfortable with his decision.
The player ‘has decided to join Milan’ and he will ‘close with the Rossoneri’ once Liverpool have completed their season which could see the Belgian leave the club with 4 winners’ medals from this season alone.
The Reds still dream of winning the quadruple and having won the Carabao Cup already and having progressed to the FA Cup and Champions League finals, they are just holding out on the Premier League title.
Origi already has two major moments in this season’s Premier League title race, scoring a 94th-minute winner against Wolves and scoring his 6th goal against Everton to help Liverpool win 2-0.
With four games to go, fans will be hoping to see the 26-year-old find the scoresheet one more time and to seal the Premier League title at the same time.
Of course, Manchester City need to drop points again to give Liverpool the gap they need to win the title again but Jurgen Klopp’s players can only focus on themselves.
Origi will be a sensational player for AC Milan if he can translate his clinical finishing to Serie A and avoid any major injuries.
This season, the former Lille star once again displayed his potent eye for goal even though he has been limited to just 572 minutes.
With 6 goals and 3 assists, he has averaged a goal contribution every 63 minutes.
