Donyell Malen’s suitors are fearful Liverpool ‘blow the bank’ to sign the striker from PSV Eindhoven this summer.
That’s what Gazzetta Dello Sport report, stating that a Liverpool effort for the player could ruin other club’s plans to get him.
Malen has been in excellent form for the Dutch side again this season, with 23 goals so far, meaning he has hit double figures for the second year running.
This has not gone unnoticed in Europe, where several clubs, such as Borussia Dortmund and AC Milan, are thinking about a move.
Gazzetta cover that today and state that, alongside Erling Haaland, Malen is one of the ‘prized pieces’ currently managed by super-agent Mino Raiola.
The belief is that he could secure a big move this summer, and, aware of this, PSV have already ‘raised the bar’ to €30m for their Dutch ‘jewel’.
Several big clubs have already tried their hand, with Juventus talking about a deal last summer and AC Milan testing the ground in their latest meetings with Raiola.
However, their chances of getting the striker are based on Liverpool not making a move, with it stated that they can get him ‘provided that Liverpool do not blow the bank’ to win the race.
Now there is no suggestion that is going to happen, but this is not the first time Liverpool have been named among Malen’s suitors, with Calciomercato stating earlier this month that they were keeping tabs on him.
That would suggest there is certainly an interest there, and perhaps this could pick up if the likes of Mohamed Salah make their way out of Anfield this summer.
