Arsenal are one of 45 clubs monitoring the development of PSV striker Donyell Malen.
Malen made his international debut for the Netherlands in September after starring for PSV last season.
The striker joined the Dutch club in August 2017 from Arsenal, having spent two years in north London.
Arsenal, who sold Malen to PSV for just £500,000, are now considering making a £50m move – an increase of 9,900% in value. Maths.
The Daily Mirror claim that ‘no fewer than 45 clubs’ are interested in the 20-year-old and have asked to be kept ‘informed’ of his future ‘plans’.
Malen, who joined Arsenal initially to emulate Dutch legend Dennis Bergkamp, scored five goals in an Eredivisie game this season and netted in the 4-2 win over Germany this month.
With ten goals in 13 games this campaign, PSV ‘believe he is already worth 100 times the sum they paid Arsenal to secure his services.’
