PSV striker Donyell Malen backed for Barcelona

Barcelona are growing their interest in a move for PSV Eindhoven striker and Netherlands international Donyell Malen, say reports.

Diario Sport report that the Catalan giants will ‘bet’ on the striker next year, following on from a similar report in Diario AS last week.

Malen has already hit a remarkable 16 goals this campaign for the Dutch giants and is particularly finding incredible goalscoring form in the Eredivisie, where he has netted 10 times in nine appearances.

The 20-year-old joined the Eindhoven club from Arsenal in the summer of 2017 but did not break into the starting line-up until last season, when he scored 11 goals.

He hit the headlines in the Eredivisie this season when he scored five goals in one game as PSV thrashed Vitesse 5-0 in September.

It is claimed by the fresh report that Malen is one of a number of strikers on the Blaugrana’s shortlist for a summer signing next year, with doubts over the long-term future of Luis Suarez.

Milan striker Rafa Leao and Inter’s Lautaro Martinez are other possible alternatives for the Catalan giants, according to recent reports.
