Tottenham to revive interest in 21-year-old summer target who is failing to impress in the La Liga

Tottenham are set to revive their interest in Brazilian attacker Malcom, according to the Daily Star.

The report claims that Malcom was a target for Spurs in the summer, but his move from Bordeaux to Barcelona has not worked out.

Tottenham face a crisis in attack with Harry Kane picking up what looks like a serious injury against Manchester United and Son Heung-min leaving for the Asian Cup.

This leaves just Fernando Llorente as the recognised senior striker and he has been taken off the market despite being linked with a move to Athletic Bilbao (h/t Daily Star).

Malcom seems surplus to requirements at the Catalan giants and was offered to Chelsea as part of a swap deal for Willian, according to the report.

The 21-year-old can play across the front-line and it will be interesting to see if Spurs quickly move for a forward in the next two weeks.

We were the only team not to sign any players in the summer, but it would be a major gamble not to make any new additions given our current state.

The report adds that Kane could be out for a few weeks and simply relying on Llorente or the likes of Lucas Moura and Erik Lamela to lead the line is a major risk.

Mauricio Pochettino has done wonders with a limited budget at Spurs, but it will be tough challenging for the top-four spot without a quality forward leading the line in Kane’s absence.
