Liverpool are interested in signing young forward Donyell Malen from Eredivisie outfit PSV, according to Fabrizio Romano.
But the Reds face competition from Borussia Dortmund, who may view Malen as a potential replacement for Jadon Sancho.
Sancho is reportedly set to join Manchester United in a £77million deal.
The lowdown on Donyell Malen
Malen, 22, scored 27 goals and provided 10 assists in 45 appearances across all competitions last season.
Only Georgios Giakoumakis and Steven Berguis out-scored him in the Dutch top-flight.
Malen has three years left on his current contract and is valued at £27million by Transfermarkt.
He’s currently on Euro 2020 duty with the Netherlands and set up goals in their group stage victories over Austria and North Macedonia.
Malen would provide Liverpool with additional cover ahead of the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations, which could see Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane miss up to a month of action at the turn of the year.
Fan feed Watch LFC relayed Romano’s claim, and here’s how fans reacted.
