Divock Origi completes AC Milan free transfer after Liverpool exit

AC Milan have completed the free signing of striker Divock Origi after his departure from Liverpool.

Origi ended an eight-year spell on Merseyside to sign a four-year contract with the Serie A champions through to the summer of 2026.

The 27-year-old Belgium international won everything there was to win during his time at Anfield and earned cult-hero status with vital goals on the biggest of occasions.

Divock Origi bids farewell to Anfield, and looks back on some of his favourite memories at Liverpool.

Having scored twice in Liverpool’s famous 4-0 Champions League semi-final triumph over Barcelona in 2019, Origi went on to score the game-clinching second against Tottenham in the final as the Reds claimed their sixth European crown in Madrid.

Origi reserved his best for Liverpool’s rivals Everton, with his 95th-minute winner in the 2018 Merseyside derby at Anfield famously marked by Jurgen Klopp racing onto the pitch in celebration, and his sixth derby goal – and last in a Liverpool shirt – sealed a 2-0 victory over the Toffees in April 2022.

A look back at Liverpool striker Divock Origi’s six goals against their Merseyside rivals Everton.

Origi’s half a dozen strikes against Everton is at least twice as many as he has managed against any other opponent in his Liverpool career, while he scored 11 goals as a substitute in the Premier League, the outright most by a Liverpool player.

He left the club after scoring 41 goals in 175 appearances and joins a Milan side who won their 19th, and first Scudetto in 11 years, under coach Stefano Pioli last season.

Jurgen Klopp says Divock Origi is an ‘outstanding’ player who will be a success wherever he goes.
