Liverpool star-striker Divock Origi is set to join AC Milan on a free transfer after the expiration of his contract at English Premier League giants Liverpool.

According to the Guardian, Origi, who is the son of former Harambee Stars striker Mike Okoth, is set to agree terms with AC Milan ahead of a move that will bring his seven-year stint at Anfield to an end.

AC Milan are on the verge of claiming Serie A this coming weekend for the first time since 2011.

Origi is set to play his final game for Liverpool against Wolves at Anfield this weekend after agreeing a move to Serie A.

Reports suggest the striker is currently waiting on a medical before signing the contract.

Jurgen Klopp expects "Liverpool legend" Divock Origi to get a "special farewell" in his final game for the club at Anfield this weekend.

"I expect Div to get a special farewell. For me, he will always be a Liverpool legend and it has been a joy to work with him,” said the Reds boss.

"He's one of the most important players I ever had. Wherever he will go he will be successful, 100 per cent. I remember so many things when I think about Div. Goals, ups and downs. He is a Liverpool legend, no doubt."

Origi is beloved by Liverpool supporters but he’s been unable to establish himself as a regular in Jurgen Klopp’s team.

He has become more renowned for scoring important goals than making many appearances — chief among them being the winning strike against Barcelona in 2019.

The striker first joined the Reds back in 2014 as a teenager, before spending the following year on loan at Lille.

The Belgium international has netted 22 goals from 107 league games for Liverpool.
