Leeds United make a ‘ambitious bid’ for Liverpool cult star after Ampadu’s confirmation

According to rumours, Leeds United have made an audacious bid for out-of-favour AC Milan center-forward Divock Origi.

After an eight-year career at Liverpool, the 28-year-old joined the Rossoneri on a free transfer last summer.

Leeds is now pushing to bring Origi back to England. It remains to be seen whether he will agree to play in the Championship.
Origi failed to make an impression in his debut season at the San Siro. So far, the striker has only two goals in 36 appearances for AC Milan.

As a result, the Italian club is willing to let the Belgian international go this summer. Leeds are hoping to capitalise on this as they attempt to avoid relegation at the first attempt.

According to the Italian outlet SportMediaSet, Leeds has’made an offer’ for Origi.

The story does not specify how much the Whites have bid, but it does mention that Crystal Palace are also interested in signing him. West Ham have also expressed an interest in the Belgian.

As previously stated, convincing Origi to drop to the second tier of English football could be a tall order.

Leeds are interested in Origi following Ampadu’s departure.
Leeds‘ bid for Origi comes after they signed their first player of the summer.
On Wednesday, the Yorkshire club announced the signing of Ethan Ampadu from Chelsea on a four-year contract.
Ampadu, who has 44 Wales caps, has been on Chelsea‘s books since joining from Exeter in 2017.
However, throughout that time, he has only made 12 appearances for the team. Chelsea has opted to sell the player after sending him on a series of loans.
The fee is labelled as ‘undisclosed,’ but it is estimated to be around £7 million. Leeds appear to be focusing their efforts on acquiring a striker.

Rodrigo, last season’s best scorer, has joined Al Rayyan. As a result, Patrick Bamford, Joe Gelhardt, and Georginio Rutter are Daniel Farke‘s current center-forward alternatives.

A proven goal scorer would undoubtedly help the Whites earn promotion. However, Leeds‘ rumoured bid for Origi shows that Farke isn’t completely sold on the trio.

As a result, it will be fascinating to observe how AC Milan reacts to Leeds’ bid for Origi. Even if they accept the bid, Origi must still consent to the change to Elland Road. This appears to be unlikely, but not impossible.
