Divock Origi signed for AC Milan on Tuesday after being let go by Liverpool at the end of last season. The 27-year-old Belgian international Origi joined Milan as a free agent after his contract was registered with the Italian top flight, although the club are yet to announce the move.
Origi arrives at the Serie A team after not having played enough matches to trigger an extension to his contract with Liverpool.
Divock Origi has reportedly signed a four-year deal that will net him four million euros ($4.23 million dollars) a season. He was largely a bit-part player at Liverpool but scored vital goals over his eight years on Merseyside which made him a favourite of fans and manager Jurgen Klopp.
Milan has brought in Divock Origi to bolster a forward line that struggled for goals despite winning last season’s thrilling Serie A title race.
Coach Stefano Pioli’s two veteran centre-forwards — Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic — netted just 19 times between them in the league.
Last month Ibrahimovic was ruled out for up to eight months following knee surgery, having missed large chunks of Milan’s title charge with injury.
