HOLLAND fans flew a plane over the team’s training ground urging Frank De Boer to play Arsenal reject Donyell Malen against North Macedonia.

The Dutch play their final Group C match on Monday and will be crowned group winners with a victory.

The message read: “Are you so smart Frank? Play Malen!”

And their supporters are desperate to see Malen start the game.

Friday’s training session was interrupted as the small plane flew over tugging the message: “Are you so smart Frank? Play Malen!”

PSV striker Malen has come off the bench for both of Holland’s wins so far.

But is yet to start.

The 22-year-old has been banging goals in for fun at PSV since being deemed not good enough by the Gunners.

PSV signed the striker for just £500,000 in 2017, with Malen returning to his native country after just two years in the Arsenal academy.

The North Londoners brought the forward to England in 2015 from Ajax, with the player making his senior debut against Sydney FC in a pre-season game in 2017.

But he failed to convince the club he deserved a chance in the first-team – a decision they immediately regretted.

In his first year at PSV, he helped the Eindhoven outfit win the Eredivisie title, while also top scoring for their reserve side.

The 2018-19 campaign saw Malen become a key player, where he scored 11 goals in 42 appearances.

His fine form saw him be called up to national team, where he found the back of the net on his debut against Germany in September 2019.

After firing in 17 goals in 25 games midway through the 2019-20 season – where he scored all five in the 5-0 win over Vitesse – Arsenal were linked with bringing him back to the Emirates.

It has since been claimed Barcelona are keeping tabs on the striker.

And Borussia Dortmund could look to land Malen to replace Erling Haaland should the Norway international be sold for £150m this summer.

Meanwhile Juventus are said to have scouted Malen for the last two years, and could turn their interest into a formal offer.

Liverpool are another club that are keen on Malen, with Jurgen Klopp’s side believed to be leading the race to secure his services.
