On May 22nd, reported West Ham United have initiated contact to sign AC Milan’s Divock Origi in the summer.

The striker arrived at the San Siro for free a year ago, but his debut season in Italy hasn’t gone well so far as he managed two goals and an assist from 36 games, and the Serie A side are now looking to get rid of him in this window.

That’s at least what MilanNews24 are reporting and add that West Ham could be an option for the 28-year-old.

The Belgium international has the experience of playing in the Premier League from his time at Liverpool, where he won several trophies, including the Champions League during the 2018/19 season.

MilanNews24 director Antonio Vitiello claims West Ham are ‘trying to bring’ the frontman to the London Stadium. He adds the Europa Conference League winners have had a ‘new chat’ with Origi’s agent and his client is ‘reflecting’ on the potential move.

Like Origi, Gianluca Scamacca’s debut season at West Ham United hasn’t been fruitful so far.

He’s reportedly linked with a move back to Serie A and should the Italian leave, there would be room for David Moyes’ side to bring in Origi or another striker.
