Playballnews Football reported at the weekend that Arsenal are monitoring £50million-rated striker Malen, two years after allowing the young Dutchman to move back to Holland for just £500,000.
Malen said: “Arsene Wenger said me that he observed a lot of potential in me”.
AC Milan have joined Arsenal and Liverpool in the group for PSV Eindhoven striker Donyell Malen, according to the newest stories from Italy.
Malen has scored 11 goals in just 13 matches in four matches for Eindhoven this season after hitting double figures in his breakthrough campaign.
And now it has appeared AC Milan have joined the race, having talked to the player’s agent Mino Raiola, Calciomercato reports.
However, the Rossoneri are said to be careful of PSV’s asking price. Malen joined Ajax when he was seven and played in the same junior team as Matthijs de Ligt and Justin Kluivert.
And he also found the target on his international debut when Holland beat Germany 4-3 in Hamburg.
“He gave me a lot of confidence and I wanted to do everything to become a better player at Arsenal – but I needed chances in the first team.”
Eindhoven believes he is already worth 100 times the sum they paid Arsenal to secure his services.
