Tottenham prepare to beat Premier League rivals to the signing of cracking €35m attacker

Published

on

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.
