Mino Raiola is in active negotiations with Liverpool about a possible move for PSV Eindhoven star Donyell Malen this summer.
That’s according to Voetbal International journalist Marco Timmer, who says the player has been given permission to talk to other clubs ahead of a move.
Malen has been heavily linked with a move away from PSV this summer after impressing for them again last season.
He continued his fine form in the European Championships with several impressive displays for the Netherlands before their unexpected exit to the Czech Republic.
Borussia Dortmund are thought to be particularly keen on his signature as they seek out a replacement for Jadon Sancho, who has joined Manchester United.
Because of that sale, the German side have the money to make a transfer happen, and several reports in Germany and the Netherlands have indicated they will do so sooner rather than later.
It seems they are not the only suitors, though, with Malen’s agent, Mino Raiola, also talking to Liverpool.
“He (Roger Schmidt) doesn’t really expect Malen and Dumfries back,” he told Voetbal International.
“On the other hand, I believe they have to report back on 19 July. There is not enough movement yet to say that there is already a transfer (but) we also know that things can go fast.
“I have spoken to some people within PSV who indicate there has been nobody concrete yet, not for Madueke. Not for Ihattaren, not for Dumfries, not for Malen yesterday.
“Yes, of course, there are negotiations going on, and with that, it can also be counted on the negotiations that in this case, Mino Raiola is conducting with Dortmund or Liverpool, for example, for Malen and Inter and Everton for Dumfries, so he has been given that space. They are allowed to talk to other clubs, and then, at some point, it can go fast.”
