Liverpool monitoring Dutch striker

Liverpool are monitoring the progress of Dutch striker Donyell Malen.

The 20-year old began his youth career with the Ajax academy, before switching to Arsenal when he 16, following in the footsteps of his heroes Dennis Bergkamp and Thierry Henry. However, despite going on pre-season tours with the senior squad, he never made an appearance for the first-team, and was sold to PSV in August 2017, despite the protests of some Arsenal fans who felt he had a promising career in North London.

Malen created headlines across Europe a week ago when he scored all five goals as PSV thumped Vitesse Arnhem 5 – 0 in an Eredivisie match. That has put him on Liverpool’s radar, and they are now said to be closely tracking his progress.

Capped by the Netherlands at all levels, Malen made his debut for the senior team earlier this month, away to Germany in their European qualifier. And he made his mark almost immediately, coming up with the third goal in a 4 – 2 win.
