Tottenham Hotspur are aiming to beat their Premier League rivals to Bordeaux’s exciting forward Malcom, according to reports in Brazilian media.

The 20-year-old, who has scored 7 times in 18 appearances this season in Ligue 1, has reportedly been attracting interest from Manchester United and Arsenal but Brazilian media outlet UOL states that Spurs have had a €35million bid turned down by the French side.

The versatile wide man, who can play on either flank or in a central role, has been in impressive form this season. Bordeaux are reluctant to sell their prized asset and are determined to keep him at the Matmut Atlantique but it remains to be seen if the player forces their hand, with the club hovering above the relegation places in the French top-flight.

Malcom joined the Les Girondins from Brazilian side Corinthians in January 2016 and has gone to score 15 goals in 67 appearances. He has established himself as one of Europe’s hottest prospects at Bordeaux and that has alerted a lot of Europe’s elite.

Reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho’s United have already held talks with Bordeaux regarding a £33million deal for the 20-year-old winger. Arsenal are also interested in the Brazilian and have reportedly entered the negotiations.

However, Malcom’s brilliant displays this season seem to have caught the eyes of Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino, who believes that the young Brazilian could add that missing spark to his side. Pochettino appears keen to add to his attacking department during January and the young and exciting talent of Malcom certainly fits the bill.

The Bordeaux winger recently sent media outlets into a frenzy, after uploading a picture of himself learning English (Manchester Evening News). He captioned the post “Allez” while translating it himself to “Come on”.

Last week, Bordeaux boss Jocelyn Gourvennec all but admitted defeat in his bid to keep the young Brazilian at the club. Gourvennec said:

“I build for the next stage with Malcom. The football is football, I do not imagine so far that he can leave but you never know. I’m not the ultimate decision maker for the club and the market remains the market.”

Last month, Bordeaux insisted that Malcom would not be allowed to leave the club in the January transfer window. This would leave Pochettino to wait until the summer before getting his man. And if our gaffer desperately needs Malcom in January, our club will have to pay over the top for the nippy Brazilian, which in my opinion is certainly not happening.

Ryan Mason Tottenham

Ryan Mason

Former Tottenham star Ryan Mason’s football career came to a premature end after he picked up a skull fracture while playing for Hull City.

The former Spurs was facing Chelsea and hung his boots in 2018 but is adored by many fans.

Now 27, the midfielder shared a video of him scoring a goal for us four years ago and what a strike it was from the Englishman.

This was Mason’s first goal for Spurs and it came in a League Cup fixture against Nottingham Forest.

The midfielder might not have been the most gifted player ever but he always gave 100% on the pitch and his move to Hull City, unfortunately, did not work out.

Mason played for numerous clubs in the English system, serving stints at Millwall, Yeovil Town and Doncaster Rovers.

The former Spurs star also had one cap for the England national side in 2015 and a number of fans tweeted their love for the player after his post.

“Most entertaining”, “The ending…” – Some Spurs fans love latest advert featuring accommodation partner

Vorm Eriksen Tottenham

Tottenham posted a video of their tie-up with Hotels.com, our official accommodation partner, and it was an interesting video, to say the least.

Spurs players Christian Eriksen, Michel Vorm, Ben Davies and Juan Foyth participated in some “hotel-related” drills in the two-minute long ad.

It was fun to see Eriksen and co carrying luggage around an obstacle course while the Dane also dropped drinks glasses from his tray.

There were a few laughs too as Vorm wasn’t able to fold the quilt in the right manner and some of the fans saw the funny side of the video.

Tottenham haven’t started the season well and were lucky to get all three points against Brighton in our previous game. However, it was nice to see the players having a great time in the fun advert.

The video certainly was done pretty well and the ending is something to behold too.

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish

Jack Grealish has signed a new five-year deal with Aston Villa that includes a huge release clause, according to the Sun.

The report adds that Tottenham offered £25million for the midfielder in the summer. But to sign him now, we would have to double the amount.

Grealish was one of the stars for the Villans last season but they missed out on promotion to the Premier League.

Villa aren’t doing well in the Championship as they lie 13th with 13 points from nine games. Grealish is yet to score for his boyhood club in the ongoing term.

With his selling price doubled, as per the report, some Tottenham fans weren’t sure about the club making a move for the player while a few blamed Daniel Levy for botching the transfer.
