Arsenal are monitoring PSV Eindhoven’s £50million-rated striker Donyell Malen – two years after allowing the young Dutchman to move back to Holland for just £500,000.

No fewer than 45 clubs have asked PSV to keep them informed of their plans for the 20-year-old international, who was dubbed the new Thierry Henry when he spent two seasons with the Gunners’ youth team.

Malen has scored 11 goals in just 13 matches in four competitions for Eindhoven this season after hitting double figures in his breakthrough campaign.

Eindhoven believe he is already worth 100 times the sum they paid Arsenal to secure his services.
