Arsenal are set to pocket €300k from Donyell Malen’s move to Borussia Dortmund, which is edging closer to being completed.
That’s according to Eindhoven Dagblad, who explain that the German side are closing in on their replacement for Jadon Sancho.
They say that Malen’s move to Dortmund is ‘basically complete’, and if all goes well, he will undergo a medical with the German side this weekend.
The two clubs have largely found an agreement verbally, and Mino Raiola was in Eindhoven on Thursday for consultations with the club over his client.
He wants to fly Malen out of the Netherlands to Switzerland, where Dortmund are currently on a training camp, as soon as possible, but there are still some agreements to be worked out.
At the moment, Dortmund are set to pay €30m for Malen, but a number of clauses are still being negotiated, and bonuses could take that figure higher.
Ajax are set to receive 1.5% of any fee and Arsenal 1%, so if it is €30m then Arsenal will be walking away with €300k.
It’s not explained explicitly why the Gunners are getting such an amount, but it’s likely to do with the training solidarity fees brought in by FIFA not long ago.
That ensures clubs who developed players as youngsters get their cut of fees, with Malen training at both Ajax and Arsenal’s youth levels before his move to PSV in 2017.
