Transfer mistake Arsenal made that will stop move for interesting PSV player


English Premier League outfit Arsenal have got the intention to bring back interesting forward Donyell Malen to the Emirates Stadium as they are in need of a striker but that might not happen with ease because they did not add a buy-back clause when he was sold.

Donyell Malen was at Arsenal until 2007. He was keen on playing regularly but that opportunity was not presented to him. He was forced to leave the North London outfit for £540,000 to PSV.

The former Arsenal player is now having a good time with fine form and is attracting interest from top clubs in Europe including Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona.

Arsenal are also considering the option of bringing him back but it would have been an easy thing to achieve if they had included a buy-back clause or an option of first refusal in his sale some years ago.

Donyell Malen now has a price tag of £22.5 million, according to a report from Soccer News but that wouldn’t have been the issue of the North London had a clause as they would have enjoyed a better bargain.

Now that he is in top form and the Gunners are battling to score goals, Donyell Malen is now needed but for a price.

Regardless of the poor form by the Arsenal attackers, Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are both in their 30s and the Gunners need to start thinking of a replacement for them even before they retire or leave the club.

Alexandre Lacazette is feared to be having his last season at the Emirates Stadium especially if his poor form continues.
Donyell Malen could be the perfect man to join Mikel Arteta’s team as he is already conversant with the Emirates Stadium and settling down in the team will be very easy and quick.
