The 16 year old has not been offered a new contract and this is what his agent Mino Raiola had to say to Italian newspaper La Stampa, “Malen has been sixteen for a while, but Ajax have still not contacted me for an interview. Weird right?’

There has been other interest in Malen too but Gunners’ ability to bring through young talent tilts the balance in their favour.
