Malacia, 21, joined Feyenoord’s youth academy all the way back in 2008.

Since arriving as a young boy, Malacia has gone on to force his way through the club’s ranks and establish himself as a first-team regular.

After being awarded his competitive debut in the Champions League in 2017, Malacia has racked up 78 appearances, in all competitions.

Despite nailing down his side’s left-back spot, Malacia has attracted the interest of some of Europe’s biggest clubs, including Arsenal.

A close source has confirmed to CaughtOffside that the Gunners’ hierarchy would like to sign Malacia in the summer and have already opened talks with his Eredivise side.

We understand that a transfer fee of around £8m has been discussed with discussions expected to continue throughout the summer.
