Leeds United want to sign Divock Origi, AC Milan open to striker sale

Leeds United have tabled an offer to sign AC Milan striker Divock Origi this summer, according to a report by SportMediaset.

Writing on their website, as relayed by Milanpress (18 July), the Whites are keen on signing the Belgium striker and have tabled an offer to the Serie A side for his services.

While no details of the bid are shared, it does state that they face competition from Premier League club Crystal Palace and that Milan are open to his exit after he managed just two goals following his arrival from Liverpool.

“As for exits, offers from Turkey for Rebic and from the Premier League (Crystal Palace and Leeds) for Origi,” they wrote.

Origi is a strange player because he quite clearly has talent and knows how to score goals – just look at his record for Belgium and Liverpool.

But he struggled big time at Milan this past season and a return to England where he would surely be the first-choice option at Elland Road could be exactly what he needs to get back on track.

Having the pedigree of playing regularly in Europe for years is something that would surely see him light up the Championship, and considering that he joined Milan on a free transfer last year it’s highly unlikely that he would too expensive.

Convincing him to drop to the Championship is certainly a task that the board and manager shouldn’t underestimate, especially if he has interest from Palace and other clubs abroad.

But if Leeds are able to bring him to the club they can feel assured they have a goalscorer in the side that will find the net when given an opportunity, and that is the most important thing when heading a promotion push.
