PSV Eindhoven manager Roger Schmidt admits that Liverpool-linked Donyell Malen is likely to leave the club this summer.

PSV Eindhoven manager Roger Schmidt has admitted that Donyell Malen is likely to leave the Dutch club during this summer's transfer window.

The 22-year-old scored 27 times and registered 10 assists in 45 appearances for PSV during the 2020-21 campaign, while he featured on four occasions for the Netherlands at Euro 2020.

Liverpool are thought to be at the head of the queue for the former Arsenal youngster, with the Reds said to be planning to open talks with the Dutchman's representatives in the near future.

Schmidt has conceded that both Malen and Denzel Dumfries, who has been linked with Bayern Munich, are likely to be on the move ahead of the 2021-22 season.

"That's how it goes in football, especially at PSV, we lose one or two good players every year," Schmidt told NOS. "It has been clear to me for some time that Donyell and Denzel are likely to leave. Actually last summer.

"I also take it into account and if they do stay, that is great. But we have to prepare ourselves that we will have to play without both next season."

Malen, who has scored 55 times and registered 24 assists in 116 appearances for his current side in all competitions, has also recently been linked with Barcelona, AC Milan and Juventus.
