Dortmund reaches an agreement with Arsenal target over summer move

Arsenal is set to miss out on signing Donyell Malen after Borussia Dortmund reached an agreement with him and his representatives to join them as a replacement for the new Manchester United signing, Jadon Sancho.

Malen was on the books of Arsenal for two seasons earlier in his career, but he couldn’t break into the first team.

He has since proven his worth after returning to the Netherlands with PSV.

He was a part of the Dutch national team squad at Euro 2020 and he impressed in the few minutes he got to play.

He was always going to leave PSV this summer and Arsenal wanted a reunion with them.

However, he now looks set to move to Germany with Sports Bild reporting that he has reached a contract agreement with the Bundesliga side.

Arsenal has been linked with several players in this transfer window, however, it seems they will not get the chance to sign Malen again.

The report says he has agreed to join Dortmund and all that is left is for both clubs to reach an agreement and his move to Germany will be confirmed.

He has scored 40 goals and provided 18 assists in 81 matches for PSV since he broke into their first team in 2018.

    It seems like every player is a target for us.

    We must be loaded with cash at the moment.

      Too bad that the powers that be, are sitting on their hands and procrastinating. Why can other clubs get business done and Arsenal can’t get deals over the line?

        Arsenal are very much loud mouthed but very slow on the transfer market. Other clubs move with speed. Poor strategy.

    If we can’t emulate teams like Dortmund, Atalanta, Ajax or even LC, when it comes to our recruiting practices, can we at least try to weasel some of their prospective signings away before they put pen to paper or possibly even target some of their players who fit our immediate needs…to me it seems like an obvious path of least resistance maneuver…like a bizarro world twist on the old adage, if you can’t beat them, join them

    We have to be proactive to get our targets otherwise other clubs will overtake us in getting all our targets.

    I don’t understand this Arsenal of a thing. How can Arsenal be the first to move for a player and later another close move faster than them??? This is wondering me so much. Look at Emiliano Buendia, for instance, we have been targeting him for long but, now where is him? At AVL….. How could that be possible if not that our management are crazy? Poor Arsenal in the transfer market…… Need a market motivator.

      Who said we were interested in him?
