Los Angeles FC is reportedly in advanced talks with AC Milan over the potential signing of Divock Origi, the Belgian-Kenyan striker, as per Goal.
According to the latest from Gianluca Di Marzio, the Italian side is open to parting ways with the former Liverpool cult hero for a fee of €5 million. The Belgian-Kenyan striker’s current market value is estimated by Transfermarkt respectively.
Origi’s career has hit a snag following a forgetful loan spell at Nottingham Forest, prompting interest from MLS as a potential avenue for the forward to revitalize his goal-scoring prowess. The move to Los Angeles FC could bring a premature end to his time at the City Ground.
Once a Premier League fan favorite, Origi gained fame for his crucial and late goals for Liverpool. However, his loan stint at Nottingham Forest this season has failed to meet expectations, with just nine appearances in the Premier League and no registered goals or assists. Notably, he has received one yellow card, exceeding his goal contributions this season.
If the deal goes through, Origi will join former Premier League players Hugo Lloris and Carlos Vela at Los Angeles FC, providing him with an opportunity to reignite his career in a new environment. The MLS move aims to help the 23-year-old striker rediscover his scoring touch, which endeared him to fans during his time with Liverpool.
For now, negotiations are ongoing, and football enthusiasts await official confirmation from both AC Milan and Los Angeles FC regarding Divock Origi’s potential move to Major League Soccer.
