AC Milan are optimistic that they can finalise a deal to bring in Liverpool striker Divock Origi this summer.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Rossoneri have all but reached an agreement with the Belgium international and only minor details remain to be negotiated before he makes the switch to Serie A at the end of his contract in June.
Origi looks set to leave Liverpool after failing to establish himself as a first team regular with the Premier League challengers, and Milan have long been touted as his most likely destination.
The Serie A leaders could arrange for further discussions to commence as early as the start of next week, as they seek to confirm Origi’s impending arrival as a long-term replacement for Zlatan Ibrahimovic in attack.
Origi, 27, joined Liverpool from Lille in 2014 and has scored 40 goals in 172 appearances for the Reds, winning the Premier League and the Champions League during his stint at Anfield.
