AC Milan’s failed move to bring Zlatan Ibrahimovic back to the San Siro could have drastic consequences for Liverpool, as the Serie A giants are now interested in a double move for Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi instead, according to a report today from Calciomercato.
Milan have decided to evaluate their options with a deal for Ibra now seemingly dead in the water and see the Liverpool pair in a bid to boost their disappointing attacking displays this term.
Alexandre Pato and Vincent Janssen are seen as two alternatives if Sturridge and Origi prove to be unattainable, and it seems as if Klopp would be unwilling to let either leave due to the heavy fixture congestion over the winter period.
Sturridge appears to be revitalised this season ever since his disappointing loan spell at West Brom in the first half of this year and has offered a different option for Klopp, with his goal of the season contender against Chelsea salvaging Liverpool a point at Stamford Bridge.
Origi, on the other hand, had a career that looked dead and buried just under a week ago, but a heroic goal in the dying seconds of the Merseyside Derby has seemingly added a glimmer of hope into his ailing Liverpool career and he was rewarded with his first start since May 2017 against Burnley midweek.
With Dominic Solanke the only other senior striking option at the club behind Roberto Firmino, it seems unthinkable that Klopp would sacrifice one, let alone two, of his striking options midway through the season — it seems as if Milan will have to look elsewhere.
