BORUSSIA DORTMUND have reportedly agreed personal terms with PSV Eindhoven ace Donyell Malen.
But Dortmund won't be able to complete the deal for the ex-Arsenal star – which could lead to the departure of Erling Haaland – until they sort out a price with the Dutch side.
PSV want around £25million for the striker who scored 19 goals in 32 starts last season, and the German side have only offered £21m, according to Goal journalist Ronan Murphy.
News of Malen's proposed move to the Bundesligia runners-up will be received well by both Chelsea and Manchester City.
The Premier League giants will be hoping Marco Rose's side hurry up and finalise the transfer.
If Dortmund manage to get Malen, it could give the Blues and City a major boost in their bid to land Haaland.
The Norway star's Dortmund future has been under intense scrutiny over the last few months.
Haaland, who netted a sensational 40 times in 43 games last season, has refused to commit his future to Dortmund.
Christian Falk, a journalist for German newspaper Bild, claims the publication asked the striker if he was staying at Dortmund.
Haaland reportedly smiled and said nothing rather that trying to quash any lingering rumours.

Recent reports suggest the Blues will make a £135million bid for Haaland this summer.
But it's understood Dortmund will only let their prized asset go for £150m – despite an alleged £65m release clause coming into play in 2022.
