Despite his goals, PSV missed out on the Dutch Eredivisie title to Ajax Amsterdam.Malen has scored 55 goals in 116 appearances for PSV since joining from Arsenal in 2018.
The aforementioned media portal revealed that Borussia Dortmund could complete a deal for Malen within two weeks and that Liverpool could switch their attention to Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman who could cost £43m. Frenchman Coman was part of the Bayern Munich squad that won the league title last season. The France national team player scored the winning goal when Bayern won the Champions League during the penultimate season.
