8 goals in 25 games – Tottenham and Arsenal to be offered Ligue 1 star in the summer

Published

on

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are set to battle in the summer transfer window for Bordeaux star Malcom as the winger has revealed he wants to leave the club. Both the North London clubs were vying for Malcom’s signature last month but Bordeaux remained firm in their decision of not selling their prized asset and the player stayed put at the club.

However, as the player has now revealed his desire to leave the French club for a new adventure, Bordeaux are planning to offer Malcom to Tottenham and Arsenal in the summer, according to the Sun.

After Malcom chose to stay with Bordeaux in January, Tottenham signed Lucas Moura, while Arsenal opted to bring in Henrikh Mkhitaryan in a swap deal that saw Alexis Sanchez move to Manchester United.

Malcom this week spoke about how he expects to leave the club in the summer.

“I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go,” the 20-year-old told Brazilian website UOL Esporte.

“I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot.

“I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club. These next three or four months will make a big difference.”

Reacting to Malcom’s latest comments, Bordeaux president Stephen Martin has made it clear no such promise or agreement has been made.

“We did not promise anything,” Martin was quoted by Tribal Football.

“We will review his case this summer, for sure. He made no secret of his desire to leave. We’ll talk about it again this summer.”

This clearly shows Bordeaux are still reluctant to sell their attacker after the end of this season. It certainly looks as though Malcom is intent on leaving the French side in the summer but they are just not prepared to let him go or will only allow him to leave if they get a substantial amount of money.

Malcom has been a star performer for Bordeaux this campaign, scoring 8 times in 25 appearances in all competitions. However, his form has seen a dip since the transfer speculation last month but that won’t rule out Spurs in officially lodging a bid once the transfer window reopens.
