Liverpool had talks about a Donyell Malen deal but they were unable to do so due to Xherdan Shahiri’s inability and Divock Origi’s refusal. Borussia Dortmund has signed the Dutch forward for an estimated fee of around PS25million.
PSV’s 22-year old striker scored 19 goals in 32 matches last year to keep his name in the shop windows.
