Donyell Malen is reportedly set to move to Borussia Dortmund following some impressive displays at Euro 2020.

The 22-year-old finished as the second-top goalscorer in the Eredivisie last season with PSV Eindhoven and then shone as the Netherlands made it to the round of 16 before being eliminated by the Czech Republic.

Despite Liverpool expressing an interest in the forward, there was no bid from the Reds, according to Fabrizio Romano, with Dortmund having already signed some of the paperwork.

Malen replaces Jadon Sancho after the Englishman completed his Manchester United move

The deal, worth €30million (£26m), will be done assuming the medical is completed without any problems.

Malen was most often deployed alongside Eran Zahavi as part of a front two at PSV and was also used as a lone striker.

However, Frank de Boer used him in a wider forward role this summer, with new Dortmund boss Marco Rose no doubt excited by Malen's versatility after Jadon Sancho's £73m move to Manchester United on Friday.

Malen will hope to emulate the deadly partnership between Sancho and Erling Haaland

Sancho formed a potent partnership with Erling Haaland at Signal Iduna Park, with the pair scoring 81 goals in all competitions between them since the Norwegian's debut for the club in January last year.

Haaland made his first appearance of the season on Saturday as Rose's men lost 2-0 against Athletic Bilbao in St. Gallen, Switzerland.
