Millwall flip down bid for Arsenal goal Abdulmalik
Arsenal will endeavor to find out the details of Swansea’s rejected approach to Millwall starlet Abdul Abdulmalik as they will try to avoid being turned down on their own offer.
According to the MailOnline report, the championship playoff finalists have taken the first step for Abdulmalik, whose contract with Millwall expires at the end of the month.
It adds that the striker has also been scouted by Arsenal as well as Scottish champions Rangers, with the Lions now struggling to maintain their 18-year-old talent.
The mail reports that Abdulmalik has been offered a new contract but the ace can still go at the end of the month in a scenario where Millwall would have resigned with a compensation fee set by a court rather than themselves.

It is added that Abdulmalik, who joined the club in South East London in 2018, feels “ready” to move on rather than signing a professional deal with Millwall.
Millwall can negotiate its own fee until the Ace’s contract expires, but it’s clear Swansea’s proposal doesn’t meet their needs.
A move to Swansea or Rangers would offer Abdulmalik a faster path to first-team football, but a move to Arsenal would keep the ace in London and likely prove much more lucrative.
