Origi set for Liverpool reunion as AC Milan exit door beckons

The Saudi Pro League clubs are looking to continue their spending spree, with AC Milan striker Divock Origi being linked with a move to the country.

The 28-year-old Belgian international joined Milan on a free transfer from Premier League giants Liverpool, and signed a four-year deal with the Rossoneri 12 months ago.

However, Origi has so far not lived up to expectations, scoring only twice in 36 games for the Milan giants.

Saudi spending spree to continue

So much so that the Serie A club is willing to accept offers of around €10-€12 million and want to use the funds to reinvest in their squad.

According to exclusive information from the Italian publication calciodangolo, Origi has already been told he is surplus to requirements and that the Big 3 in the Saudi League – Al Hilal, Al Nassr and Al Ahli – are all interested in his services.

The publication further reports that there will be no problems agreeing to terms with Origi, while negotiations between the clubs have already begun.

Before joining Milan, Origi spent seven years on Merseyside.

Origi could be reunited with Firmino, Mane

He was never the first-choice striker and spent a long time on the injury table, resulting in him only playing 175 games in all competitions for the Reds, scoring 41 goals.

However, he achieved cult hero status at the club after scoring in the Champions League final and finding the back of the six times against cross-town rivals Everton, including a dramatic winner in the Merseyside derby in 2018.

Origi also scored three goals in 32 appearances for the Belgium national team.

Should he agree to terms, he could rejoin former teammate Roberto Firmino at Al Ahli or another ex-Red Sadio Mane at Al Nassr.
