Divock Origi’s move from Liverpool to AC Milan is ‘getting closer’ according to a new report, as the popular Belgian heads towards the Anfield exit door.
The Lowdown: Origi’s final act?
The 27-year-old further etched his name into Reds folklore on Sunday afternoon, as he scored against Everton yet again, helping his side win 2-0 at Anfield.
It could be Origi’s final key contribution for Liverpool, with endless recent links tipping him for a summer move to Serie A giants Milan, with some reports even claiming the deal is as good as done.
The forward’s current Reds deal runs out at the end of the season and Jurgen Klopp has made it clear that he can move on to pastures new.
The Latest: Agreement within the week
The report also states that ‘this week will most likely be the right one to find the definitive agreement’, with the Rossoneri now ‘waiting to settle the final details of the agreement’ within the next 72 hours.
The Verdict: Anfield hero
He is too good to be sitting on the substitutes’ bench every week, and at 27, Milan could get him just as he comes into the peak years of his career.
Origi will forever be adored by Liverpool supporters, given the impact he has made – Klopp called him ‘world-class’ just last weekend – and it would be just like him to produce one more huge moment before his time is up.
