In a recent report, Calciomercato (translated by HITC) has stated that Liverpool are keeping a keen eye on PSV Eindhoven forward Donyell Malen whose current contract expires in the summer of 2024. However, it is understood that the Reds could face stiff competition from AC Milan in the race to secure the signature of the Dutch striker (via Calciomercato).
Malen’s Incredible Form In Dutch Football This Season
Malen is enjoying another outstanding season at the Philips Stadium after producing a series of match-winning displays as the focal point of Roger Schmidt’s attack. The 22-year-old has participated in 36 matches for the Dutch giants this term, netting 22 goals and providing eight assists in multiple competitions.
The Wieringen-born sensation has caught the eye by averaging 3.5 shots, 0.8 key passes and 1.4 dribbles per 90 minutes in the Dutch Eredivisie. Malen has also been tidy when distributing possession in the opposition half after making 80% of his attempted passes in the Dutch top-flight (stats via whoscored).
The promising talent is currently under a long-term contract at Eindhoven, so it would take a significant offer from any of his potential suitors, including Liverpool, if they want to acquire his services during the summer transfer window.
What Will The Dutch Marksman Bring To Anfield?
Malen has blistering pace in his locker and can complete some dangerous dribbles in the final third. He is proficient at generating space for himself to get some shot in at goal and has established himself as a consistent goal-scorer in the Eredivisie.
The six-time Dutch international has even got the strength to hold his own against the bigger defenders and can contribute by getting his fair share of assists in the opposition half. Plus, he is versatile enough to feature anywhere across the frontline as he is primarily a centre-forward but can also fill in as a winger on either flank if required.
Malen has what it takes to add some much-needed competition for Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota up top. He would serve as an upgrade over Divock Origi, who has flattered to deceive with his performances for the Reds this season.
At 22, Malen is a player on the rise and would add a lot of long-term value to Jurgen Klopp’s squad. The German tactician could be the ideal man to get the best out of the PSV Eindhoven rising star if he manages to bring him to Merseyside this summer. However, there are some concerns over whether Malen can cope with the physical nature and high intensity of Premier League football due to his inexperience of playing at the highest level week in week out.
