Raiola talks up Arsenal youngster’s potential

Football agent Mino Raiola has revealed that of all the young players he represents, Arsenal forward Donyell Malen has shown the greatest promise.

Raiola is considered a 'super agent' due to the notable amount of high-profile players he represents, which includes Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba, and made the statement when discussing his latest crop of young talents.

With the likes of teenage Italy international Gianluigi Donnarumma on his books, the praise for the Gunners youngster should be taken seriously.

"He [Donyell] 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," he told the Daily Mail.

"Gianluigi Donnarumma is in the national team at 17 so he will continue to get better with Italy and AC Milan, Moise Kean is doing well at Juventus but one who I am excited about is already with a Premier League club and that is Donyell Malen at Arsenal.

Since joining Arsene Wenger's side in 2015, the 17-year-old has scored 14 goals in 30 games for the Gunners youth and reserve sides.
