German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund come in as firm favourites to sign Malen this summer, as ultimately the Black and Yellows will be looking for a replacement for Norwegian prodigy Erling Haaland within the next 12 months.
At present, it will take a huge bid to sign Haaland from Dortmund, but the Norwegian has a rumoured release clause of €75m next summer which will see a whole host of European giants circle around for the 20-year-old’s signature.
Marco Rose’s side currently have no established senior striker to rotate with Haaland at present, as they are sparsely utilising young talents such as Youssoufa Moukoko for the time being with the Cameroonian being just 16-years-old. The likes of Malen could be a vital cog in the Dortmund system in future years, due to the Dutchman’s goalscoring ability to score and link-up play, which could help the likes of Marco Reus, Julian Brandt, Thorgan Hazard and Gio Reyna form a deadly attacking line with the 22-year-old.
Malen is priced at 6/4 to move to the Signal Iduna Park this summer – click on the link to claim this bet in your bet slip!
