Some Arsenal fans react to news about Malen's contract clause
Some Arsenal fans have been reacting after news emerged over the sale of ex-player Donyell Malen to Borussia Dortmund.
According to football.london, the Gunners will receive £250k from PSV’s £25m deal with the German outfit.
Malen has been hotly pursued this summer, with a raft of teams interested in him. He was reportedly a target for Premier League rivals Liverpool, but the 22-year-old seems destined for Signal Iduna Park.
The Netherlands international was with Arsenal from 2016 to 2017, but he never made a first-team appearance. He left the club for the Eredivisie side back in 2017 for just £250k.
Malen could have saved Arsenal £72m
You feel like Malen could have saved Arsenal £72m amid news over his imminent sale.
The Gunners desperately required a right/left winger during the summer of 2019. It saw the club splash out the club record fee for Nicolas Pepe.
Little did the north London outfit know, they had just sold a talented wide player for mere peanuts.
It is hard to understand why either transfer ever occurred. However, looking back, the Londoners probably regret both pieces of business.
Here is how some Arsenal fans reacted to the latest news…

1%? What’s even the point? Who put that clause in? If he went for £100m we’d get £1m! What a pathetic clause— Chougs (@CChougs) July 23, 2021
