A recent report from German publication Bild, confirms that Liverpool and Arsenal are the latest clubs to join the race for Dortmund attacker Donyell Malen.

According to the report, Borussia Dortmund could let go of the 25-year-old Dutchman for something in the region of €60million.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano had recently confirmed Manchester United’s interest in Malen even adding what a good relationship they have with Malen’s agents as they also represent United manager Erik ten Hag.

€60million is not too steep a price for such versatility and considering he is still only 25, his better years are well ahead of him.

Despite their evident interest, Liverpool perhaps need his services the least with such a star-studded attack. They will be looking to add Malen to an already sparkling ensemble of attacking talent.

Perhaps their concerns mainly lie within Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz being injury prone.

Arsenal on the other hand would do quite well with such a talent.

They have been playing perhaps the best football in England, and it feels like a proper attacker is the missing piece in what would be an all-conquering team.

Gabriel Jesus and Eddie Nketiah have not been delivering output worthy of a top 6 side, and Malen could bring the goals the duo cannot produce. The former has also had issues staying fit all season.

Manchester United will now have to battle rivals Liverpool and Arsenal for his signature if a deal is to happen come the summer.

The Red Devils however seem to be best poised to make this deal happen. The joining link that is ten Hag and Malen sharing an agency could prove very crucial should United pursue the transfer.

The Mancunian club also have another bargaining chip in Jadon Sancho. It has been rumoured that BVB would be open to a player swap for Sancho as they are keen to keep the Englishman beyond his loan. A Malen-Sancho swap would be a win-win for both clubs.
