Borussia Dortmund star Donyell Malen could end up at Liverpool this summer, even though his agents have recently been doing all of Manchester United’s transfers.

That’s according to SportBILD, who cover the player today and how a €40-50m price tag has been put on him ahead of the summer transfer window.

The newspaper explains that Dortmund sporting director Sebastien Kehl ‘urgently needs transfer money’ for the coming summer and unlike recent years doesn’t have top talents to sell.

Thus, the focus is now on Malen who at 25-years-old seems to be hitting his best and now could be sold on to any of the interested parties.

According to SportBILD’s information, he will be allowed to leave in the summer for a fee of €40-50m because Dortmund need the money to restructure their squad.

Malen has already started to plan for a departure, moving from Rafaela Pimenta’s agency in November to join SEG, the Dutch ‘XXL company’ run by Maikel Stevens, who ‘recently carried out all of Manchester United’s transfers’.

The suggestion is they are in the mix because of that association but Liverpool are ‘also keeping an eye’ on Malen and he could end up at Anfield.

Both clubs have certainly been in the mix for a while, with links to both going back years and continuing last summer and even before January.

Liverpool are the longest admirers and were once told he’d cost €60m but it seems that has reduced, which may tempt them, while it was claimed in December that Malen would jump at the chance to join Manchester United.

There may be a deal there to be done for both sides, with that agent swap seen as the start of a transfer saga for the summer.
