Player who left Liverpool in 2022 could be sold by new club after being branded the 'worst signing of season'

An ex-Liverpool player could be sold by Serie A champions AC Milan following a disastrous start to life at his new club.

Milan won the Scudetto last season with the veterans Olivier Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic leading the line at the San Siro.

Last summer they bolstered their attacking options in the hopes of sustaining their time at the top and signed forward Divock Origi on a free transfer after his contract expired with the Reds.

The Belgian who was a fan favourite at Anfield arrived having been directly involved in 59 goals in 175 appearances.


He was known at Liverpool for his ability to come off the bench and change a game but decided to leave so he could play more regularly elsewhere.

However, recent reports from Italy have said that Milan are willing to sell a sub-par Origi so they can raise funds for a new striker.

Milan are set to renew the contract of their key man Giroud, but he turns 37 later this year so they are aware that signing a longer-term replacement needs to be a priority.



He's the 'worst signing of the season'

Given their admiration of Origi, Liverpool fans will be disappointed that it hasn't gone well for him in Italy.

He will forever be known for his winning goal against Barcelona at Anfield which saw Liverpool complete a historic comeback after being three goals down from the first leg.

They went on to win the Champions League during that season with Origi playing a massive part in the victory.


He's clearly shown how good he can be in big moments but for Milan this season that hasn't been the case.

In 21 appearances he's scored just two goals and it's clear they don't think he's the man to replace their talisman Giroud.

Italian journalist Alvise Cagnazzo blasted Origi earlier this season in a report in the Daily Mail, as reported by The Mirror.

He said: "There is no doubt who the worst signing of the season has been in Serie A: Divock Origi.


"The Belgian left Liverpool hoping to finally nail down a starting spot at a top club, but his time at AC Milan has so far been a disaster."

This might have seemed harsh back in September but his form hasn't improved and his time at Milan seems to be over.
