Liverpool has already presented an opening offer to sign Dutch winger Donyell Malen Transfers

Even in Liverpool, which has one of the best forward lineups in the Premier League, including Luis Diaz, Darwin Nunez, Cody Gakpo, and Diogo Jota, Egyptian international Mohamed Salah has been the ace of the club this season, scoring goals and providing assists at key moments.

However, coach Jurgen Klopp will also be gone this summer. Saudi Arabia is also interested in him, as it was last year, and is rumored to be preparing a huge offer for him this year. With less than a year left on his contract, the 32-year-old winger is also looking to increase his budget for reinforcements.

Against this backdrop, the search for a successor to the Egyptian winger continues behind the scenes. According to Fichajes, the club has presented a first shot offer for Dutch international Donyell Malen, who has been interested in the club since his days with PSV Eindhoven.

He joined Borussia Dortmund in 2021, where he has scored 29 goals and provided 17 assists in 101 games. The player has been a mainstay of the team this season, but his club is said to be planning to sell him to raise funds, and it is reported that he may accept an offer for around 40 million euros.

He has excellent speed, can play on both wings, and could be a valuable new option for the current squad. He is not a very expensive attacker and will have an interesting option for the long season ahead.

However, as a replacement for Egyptian King, he is not enough. Also, a right-handed attacker who can cut in from the right wing would still be ideal, and it seems unlikely that they will actually start to acquire one, since the German conductor is retiring, but what the heck…!
