Director says chance of 27-goal striker leaving is 'very high' amid Liverpool links
Liverpool have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Donyell Malen this summer.
Malen’s agent, Mino Raiola, was apparently discussing a move with the Anfield side for the 22-year-old.
However, Liverpool are reportedly up against Borussia Dortmund for Malen’s signature.
And it’s unlikely that the Netherlands international will stay put in Eindhoven.
Technical director John de Jong has suggested this himself, as quoted by Voetbal International on Wednesday.
“(Denzel) Dumfries and Malen? We have not received a concrete offer yet,” said De Jong.
“Of course, that can change very quickly. The chance of both of them leaving is of course very high.”
Last season was especially fruitful for Malen, with 27 goals and 10 assists from 45 appearances in all competitions.
Eurosport reported last month that Malen has a £34million price tag.
