AC Milan are set to announce the signing of Divock Origi in the coming hours, with the player arriving in Italy to complete the transfer as of yesterday. All details for the move have been agreed, and the striker is set to be their first signing of the season following their Serie A title win.
There were offers from Villarreal and several other Bundesliga clubs for the Belgian, but he always wanted to move to San Siro. And now, it is only a matter of time before his arrival is officially announced by the club.
Divock Origi signing to be made official imminently
The forward scored 65 career goals in 302 appearances, featuring for Liverpool, Wolfsburg and Lille. He has grown a reputation as a supersub during his time at Anfield, making an impact off the bench in several Merseyside derbies and important games.
His most memorable moment in a Liverpool shirt was the match-winning goal in the Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, overturning a massive deficit to send his team to the final against all odds.
But due to a lack of first team action, he decided to move on to a club where he could be a regular. With an aging Olivier Giroud and injured Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Divock Origi will be able to provide a great impact for the club due to his sleek finishing. The 27-year-old will be a valuable addition to the front-line, as the Rossoneri aim to follow up on their success from last year.
