Divock Origi to Hammers?

Former Liverpool and current AC Milan striker Divock Origi has been sensationally linked with a return to England, as Premier League side West Ham prepare a rumoured 10 million euro transfer bid for the forward. Origi is a fan favourite at Anfield, and reluctantly left Liverpool in search of regular first-team football, but his time at AC Milan has so far failed to impress many.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Belgium international striker is amongst the players who is on West Ham's wish list ahead of the new season, particularly as Gianluca Scamacca looks set for a return to Italy after failing to impress in his first season in East London. 

Milan have secured the signing of Noah Okafor this summer already, leaving Origi's opportunities at the Rossoneri extremely limited.

West Ham on the other hand are desperate for new faces and have money to spend having sold Declan Rice to Arsenal in a transfer record £105 million deal.

The Hammers are also prioritising a midfield signing as a replacement for the departed Rice.
