Divock Origi will leave Liverpool in the coming weeks as he prepares to join Italian giants AC Milan.
That’s according to journalist Fabrizio Romano, who claims that the Liverpool striker will shortly be going for a medical in Milan.
Posting on Twitter, Romano claimed that Origi has ‘no doubts’ about where he’ll be playing next season. The 27-year-old is reportedly waiting only for his medical before signing a contract with the Rossoneri.
The Reds are said to have already accepted Origi’s decision, and are set to lose him on a free transfer.
Origi all set for exit
Divock’s destination has been mooted for quite some time, but it now looks almost set to be official.
It would be nice if statements could be made ahead of the weekend to allow him a proper Anfield send-off.
Yes, the fact that Origi is leaving is the worst kept secret around at this point. But there has been no official confirmation.
The club should do their best to avoid a Gini Wijnaldum situation from last season. The Dutch midfielder received an excellent farewell from the limited numbers inside Anfield and was presented with a plaque at the end of the game.
However, Wijnaldum looked slightly ambushed by the whole thing. His departure was still yet to be confirmed and perhaps it took him a little by surprise.
Origi is unlikely to be in the starting line-up as Liverpool take their last shot at winning the Premier League this season. If The Reds are comfortably ahead towards the end of the game on Sunday though, he should get some minutes.
We are still yet to see that big Origi moment we were all hoping would arrive as the season finishes. There are still two massive games to go though, wouldn’t it be perfect if the man signed for £10m in 2014 could clinch a crucial goal in either.
There could be a few Liverpool players waving goodbye to the club when next weekend is over. None of them will be remembered with quite the same reverence as the big Belgian though. Until we meet again Divock!
