Liverpool are interested in signing Borussia Dortmund’s Dutch winger Donyell Malen, with Jurgen Klopp impressed with his recent form.
- Liverpool interested in Malen
- Possible Salah replacement
- Could cost up to €60 million
WHAT HAPPENED? According to Sport Bild, as Klopp sees the Dutchman as a potential successor for Mohamed Salah. To recoup their investment, Dortmund may seek at least €60 million (£52m/$63m) for the forward. When the Bundesliga giants lost Jadon Sancho to Manchester United in the summer of 2021, they acquired Malen as his successor for €30 million (£26m/$32m).
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Dutchman’s debut season in the Bundesliga was underwhelming. However, Malen did improve the next year, scoring nine goals, and he has already netted four times this year. Liverpool would likely only sign the winger if Salah decides to leave the team in 2024’s summer transfer window.

WHAT NEXT? Malen will be looking to continue his strong to the season against Hoffenheim on Friday. Liverpool, meanwhile, take on Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend.
