Super Agent Mino Raiola Reckons Arsenal’s Donyell Malen Will Be a “Revelation”

Super Agent Mino Raiola Reckons Arsenal’s Donyell Malen Will Be a “Revelation”

He’s one of the most influential men in football, and Mino Raiola has picked out an Arsenal youth team player as one of Europe’s most exciting up-and-coming stars of the future.

Anyone who knows even the vaguest amount about European football will know the power that Raiola wields, as agent for the likes of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli.

And in the Italian’s opinion, 17-year-old striker Malen could be knocking on Arsene Wenger’s door for a spot in the Gunners’ first-team before too long.

Signed from Ajax in 2015, Malen has been represented by Raiola for several years now, and it’s fair to say he has high hopes for the Netherlands Under-17 international.

In a brilliant interview with the Daily Mail, Raiola put Malen in the same bracket as AC Milan prodigy Gianluigi Donnarumma, saying: “One who I am excited about is already with a Premier League club and that is Donyell Malen at Arsenal.

“He is a very talented young Dutch player with lots of ability, he is at a very good club with a great manager and I think he can be a revelation.”

Revelation? High praise for a player so young, eh? Arsenal could definitely do with a young player breaking into the first-team, particularly a striker.

What do you make of Raiola’s comments? And could Malen thrive at the Emirates?
