Liverpool have confirmed that Divock Origi will leave Anfield when his contract expires as the striker reportedly closes on a switch to Milan.

Origi moved to Anfield from Lille in 2014, but was immediately loaned back to the Ligue 1 team.

It set the precedent for an eight-year stay at Reds, where the Belgian national team player was used sparingly, but he scored some crucial goals for Jurgen Klopp’s team.

“Hi [Origi] is a legend on and off the field. Fantastic footballer, a world-class striker and is our best finisher, “said Reds manager Klopp about Origi after scoring in a Merseyside derby victory over Everton in April.

“Everyone would say the same thing. You see that in training. It’s a really difficult decision to make to leave him out. Everyone loves Divock here.”

Origi scored 22 goals in 107 Premier League matches for Liverpool and started just 34 of those matches.

He developed a reputation for being a super-sub-sub who emerged with late attacks against Everton and in the iconic 4-0 thrashing of Barcelona in a Champions League semi-final.

Origi also scored second in the 2019 Champions League final over Tottenham, securing its legendary status among the faithful Reds.

The 27-year-old has reportedly agreed to join Serie A champions Milan when his contract with Liverpool expires at the end of this month.
