AC Milan have been warned against signing Liverpool forward Divock Origi as he is a “part-time player” for the Premier League club.
The striker is out of contract this summer and he looks set to depart Liverpool. Italian side AC Milan look to be leading the race to sign him.
Origi is a beloved figure at Liverpool as he scored in the Champions League final in 2019. But he has barely featured for the Reds this season.
AC Milan have also been linked with Armando Broja of late. The Chelsea youngster has spent this season on loan at Southampton.
The 20-year-old has been a star player for the Saints this term as he has been involved in ten goals across all competitions.
Federico Zancan, a journalist for Sky Italia, has encouraged Milan to sign Broja instead of Origi:
“He’s a part-time player, and despite having little space, he has remained and become a cult for Liverpool fans. He’s a strong player and is very attractive to big teams in Europe. In the last season, Klopp has also used him out wide,” Zancan said via Sport Witness).

On Broja, Zancan added: “He is a very strong player and is waiting to be discovered. I would take him instead of Origi. He is owned by Chelsea, so it will be difficult to go get him but the London team will be able to sell him given the many talents they have at home. But it’s complicated.”
