Liverpool might be considering a move for Donyell Malen after Jadon Sancho’s loan return to Borussia Dortmund.
Reports suggest that Borussia Dortmund would be willing to entertain the idea of selling the Dutch forward in January, especially if an offer emerges from the Premier League, as indicated by Christian Falk.
“Sancho’s arrival would put a lot of pressure on Donyell Malen,” the BILD reporter exclusively informed CaughtOffside.
“He could be sold immediately. There was an idea of a swap deal with Manchester United for Sancho – they didn’t go for it.
“But if there is an offer coming from the Premier League for Malen, Dortmund will be open to talks.”
The 25-year-old has been previously linked with a move to Anfield. Commentators have proposed that the former PSV star might serve as a long-term replacement for Mo Salah, linking him to the possibility of filling Salah’s boots.
Malen Could Be Devastating
In specific situations, the Dortmund attacker possesses the potential to unsettle even some of Europe’s top teams.
Despite a modest goal count of six this season across all competitions, Malen’s statistics imply that he is capable of, and perhaps should be, scoring significantly more.
As per FBref, the right-sided winger currently boasts a non-penalty xG rating in the 99th percentile, surpassing Mo Salah’s 98th percentile.
To be clear, Malen has a considerable distance to cover in order to match the astonishing goal or assist rate of our Egyptian King, standing at one every 75.47 minutes.
Nevertheless, there is a reasonable expectation that our coaching team may have confidence in their ability to mold Malen into a formidable force.
