Just one year after leaving Liverpool, AC Milan striker Divock Origi might reportedly be returning to the Premier League this summer.
The good news for Milan is that, just a year after signing the 27-year-old on a free transfer, the seven-time European champions might make money if they decide to sell Origi.
Stefano Pioli rotated last weekend due to the Rossoneri’s subsequent trip to Napoli for the opening leg of their Champions League quarterfinal.
However, Friday’s scoreless draw against Empoli at home only served to emphasise the stark disparity in quality between Milan’s starting lineup and their backups.
Origi was also was described as a “modern-day Liverpool legend” by Jurgen Klopp.
“He is, and will be for me, forever a Liverpool legend. One of the most important players I ever had,” Klopp says.
“An outstanding player. Outstanding boy. Everybody in the team loves him because he was just a relaxed guy and a really lovable guy.
“So, yeah, it will be a harsh moment when he actually leaves. I remember so many things when I think about Div that’s incredible; important goals, injuries… bad injuries, and all these kinds of things. Ups and downs.
“He is a Liverpool legend, no doubt.”
