Liverpool to sanction striker’s sale with Serie A clubs eyeing January move

Liverpool are willing to let Divock Origi leave next month.

Liverpool striker Divock Origi has struggled for game time recently and, despite his winning goals against Wolverhampton Wanderers and AC Milan, looks set to leave in January.

The 26-year-old has provided Reds’ fans with some of their best memories - including their Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona.

After seven years on Merseyside, Liverpool are finally preparing to sanction a move away for the Belgian as he looks in search of first team football.

Origi has been heavily linked with a move to another Premier League club this year, with the likes of West Ham and Newcastle United both keen on signing the striker.

However, with Origi closer to the exit door as he ever has been, it is looking increasingly likely that he will move to Italy when the transfer window opens.

Who wants to sign Divock Origi?

According to Tuttomercato, both AC Milan and Atalanta have joined the race to sign Origi.

TM claim that Milan are keen on bringing Origi in to replace Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who turned 40 last month.

Meanwhile, Atalanta would like to sign Origi to fill the boots of want-away forward Luis Muriel.

The Colombian is hopeful of a move away from Bergamo in a bid to secure first-team football - the same reason Origi would make the switch to Italy.

If Origi was to depart Anfield then he would demand a spot in the starting line-up after playing second fiddle to Liverpool’s unstoppable attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah for so many years.
