North London outfit Arsenal are reportedly in the bid of bringing back Netherlands international forward Donyell Malen to the Emirates Stadium as his services seem to be needed.

Donyell Malen was on the books of the Gunners from 2015 to 2017 but was never favoured for a first-team appearance even after his professional contract with the club in 2016.

He now plies his trade with PSV Eindhoven and has been in the best form, hitting the back of the net 33 times with 16 other assists in 78 games across all competitions.

Soccernew reports that North London now wants to have the 21-year-old again as they might be preparing for the exit of French striker Alexandre Lacazette who has not been favoured with a regular starting role.

However, it is understood that the Gunners will have to do more to be able to land the services of Donyell Malen as he is also attracting interest from a number of clubs including the Italian Serie A champions Juventus.

It is claimed that Juventus have already held talks with Donyell Malen’s agent Mino Raiola while Spanish La Liga outfit La Liga are also keen on his service.

Donyell Malen is also doing himself proud at the national team level as he scored his first goal for Netherlands national team against Germany last September.
