AC Milan have reportedly put forward a proposal to sign Divock Origi, who will leave Liverpool on a free transfer when his contract expires in the summer.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool forward Divock Origi has a contract proposal from AC Milan, who are pushing to complete a deal for the Belgian international. The Belgian international is set to leave the Premier League giants on a free transfer when his current contract expires this summer.

With a Bosman move looming large, plenty of clubs in England and Europe are showing considerable interest in the forward. He has vast experience despite only being a substitute during his entire time at Liverpool. He has made 171 appearances to date for the Reds in all competitions.

AC Milan have long been considering bringing the Belgian to San Siro and remain firmly in the race. The No. 9 position is where the Serie A giants need immediate refreshing as it is currently held by veterans Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who have seen fitness concerns emerge consistently this season.

Manager Stefano Pioli wants AC Milan to make a move for Origi, as they look to close the deal at the earliest possible juncture, to avoid entering into a battle with other interested parties. However, they face competition from Napoli if reports are accurate.

To get ahead of the queue, Milan have already initiated exploratory contacts with Origi’s representatives to understand the player’s demands. According to Fabrizio Romano, the Rossoneri have already made a contract proposal for the Liverpool star.

Milan would certainly like to close the signing as soon as possible, with the player able to sign a pre-contract agreement at this moment. There may yet be complications, as Origi might want to wait a bit longer to evaluate potential offers that could come in between now and the end of the season.

As things stand, Milan are a club on the rise, and Origi can play with far more regularity at San Siro than at Liverpool. However, remaining in the Premier League might also be running through his head with clubs from England showing interest in him in the recent past.
