Milan in for unused Liverpool star


Italian Serie A side AC Milan are reported to be keen on the signature of Divock Origi who has been unused at the Anfield ahead of the winter transfer market which reopens in the coming weeks.

Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that the Italian side could submit a bid for the player with the hope that the Reds will have him leave the club in January.

The Italian side are believed to be short of options in their attack and are desperate to ensure an addition as soon as the winter transfer window.

According to other sources, Milan have their eyes on other players should a deal for Divock Origi fails to pull through with Alexandre Pato, Marcus Rashford also being monitored as possible reinforcement.

Divock Origi has got a release clause of about £27 million but he could be given out on a higher price in case a decision is finally made that he would be allowed to leave.

The Italian side have got a new CEO Ivan Gazadis who has been charged with the recruitment of players and also ensuring that the club return to their glory days.

The former Arsenal will, therefore, wish to pull a successful deal that will ensure his new side challenge in the Italian Serie A.
