Origi exit talk and Keita’s early injury withdrawal – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are into their first FA Cup semi-final under Jurgen Klopp to remain in all three remaining competitions, but the first international break of the year has arrived.


Momentum on Origi to AC Milan…

After eight years, Divock Origi‘s time at Liverpool is set to come to an end in the summer and talk continues to mount over his next destination being in Italy.

And the latest from transfer merchant Fabrizio Romano is that the No. 27 is “more than tempted” by AC Milan’s contract proposal, with talks ongoing with his representatives.

As a free agent, his signature will be a much sought after one but Romano also went on to say that Milan are wanting to “complete the verbal agreement as soon as possible.”

Although with only 14 appearances to his name this season, Origi could still be needed by Klopp but life after the Belgian appears only around the corner.

It’s a likely destination for the 26-year-old and a report that has merit, unlike a certain and costly move for Erling Haaland that has been whispered in some questionable places.
