Much like every other anticipated summer transfer move Milan fans have been held in suspense as to if a transfer will happen or collapse. Either due to the change of ownership from Elliott to RedBird or because of the riches of English Premier League (plus PSG) nothing can be certain until it is official.

Origi, sometimes known by Liverpool fans as a super sub, played sporadically on a team that featured the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. He is well liked by most and scorer of some headline making goals. The team certainly requires offense as it is lacking depth. He joins until 2026 on a reported salary of €3.5 million a year.
