Liverpool striker Divock Origi remains a ‘concrete goal’ for AC Milan this summer after talks about signing him in January.
That’s according to Milan News, who back up reports that the Serie A side are keen on the Belgian ahead of the summer.
Origi is set to leave Anfield at the end of the season, with his contract coming to an end and Liverpool not set to offer him a new deal at present.
Milan are those thought to be eyeing him up as a result, and several reports this week have indicated that they’ve already met with the player’s agent.
Milan News back that up, stating that Origi is a ‘concrete target’ for Milan, who were offered the chance to sign him in the January transfer window.
They say that Milan have ‘identified’ the forward as a reinforcement for next season and have ‘already started’ contacts with his agents.
The player is a definite target for club chiefs Maldini and Massara, who want to repeat the success they’ve enjoyed after signing Olivier Giroud on a free transfer.
They want a player who has ‘different characteristics’ compared to the Frenchman but also someone who is capable of adapting the Rossoneri’s game, and they believe Origi can do that.
His current contract with Liverpool expires in three months and has a unilateral clause that is activated upon him reaching a certain number of appearances, but at the moment, that is ‘rather unlikely’ to happen.
That leaves the door open for Milan to get their man, and they are ‘serious’ about taking him to Casa Milan. News is ‘expected in the coming weeks’ in that regard.
