Liverpool is keen to acquire the talents of Borussia Dortmund’s standout player, Donyell Malen, a player who has long been admired by Liverpool’s leadership, going back to his days at PSV. Currently under contract with Dortmund until 2026, reports indicate that the German club values the Dutch forward at a minimum of £52 million in any potential transfer.
Donyell Malen is widely praised for his exceptional speed and versatility, excelling in various attacking roles, particularly on the right flank. He possesses impressive link-up play, adept dribbling to navigate past defenders, and the ability to deliver precise crosses, making him a dynamic and unpredictable presence, especially when deployed on the flanks.
While Malen initially faced challenges in replicating his prolific scoring form from his Eredivisie days at PSV during his first two seasons with Dortmund, the current campaign has seen a resurgence, reminiscent of the performances that initially attracted the interest of top-tier clubs before his move to BVB.
Liverpool’s star player, Mohamed Salah, continues to deliver exceptional performances, tallying four goals and four assists in seven appearances at the start of the current season. This sustained excellence led to a reported £150 million offer from Saudi Pro League club Al-Ittihad during the summer transfer window, an offer that Liverpool unequivocally rejected. Salah remains an integral figure for Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.
Al-Ittihad’s reported willingness to increase their offer to £200 million for the Liverpool icon underscores their determination to secure his services, suggesting the possibility of renewed efforts next summer. Nonetheless, with Salah maintaining peak form and wielding significant influence, Liverpool is contemplating Donyell Malen as a potential long-term successor. At 24 years old, Malen is entering the prime years of his career, and there is a prevailing sense of optimism about his potential to further enhance his goal-scoring prowess in the seasons ahead.
