AC Milan has completed the transfer of former Liverpool striker Divock Origi on a free transfer.

Origi left Liverpool after eight years in England at the end of last season, having fallen down the pecking order at the club. Milan announced on Tuesday that it had signed a deal until June 2026.

The Belgian had to wait for his moments at Liverpool, but when given the chance, he was often the difference-maker, earning cult hero status on Merseyside.

His 95th-minute win against Everton in 2018 had coach Jürgen Klopp sprinting across the pitch to celebrate, while also scoring a decisive second goal in the 2019 Champions League final, as well as a double in the famous 4-0 win against Liverpool Barcelona that season.

The 27-year-old scored 11 goals as a Premier League substitute, most of them by a Liverpool player.

He left the club after scoring 41 goals in 175 appearances and joining a Milan squad that won their first Scudetto in 11 years under coach Stefano Pioli last season.
