Tottenham have met with Bordeaux winger Malcom’s agents
France Football and Le 10 Sport are today reporting that Tottenham have met with Bordeaux winger Malcom’s agents recently in order to discuss a deal for the young Brazilian.
Malcom could certainly be a solid backup winger for any of Tottenham’s attacking midfielders.
The 21-year-old began his career in Brazil with Corinthians where he would make 54 appearances, scoring seven and assisting five in that time.
Malcom would then move to Ligue 1 side Bordeaux in 2016 for just £4.5 million.
The Brazilian has played 96 games for the French side and has scored 23 and assisted 16 in that period.
However, Malcom’s 2017/18 season was perhaps the most impressive. In 35 league games, he scored 12 and assisted seven, a very impressive record for such a young right winger.
Interest from elsewhere
Inter Milan are reportedly keen to sign Malcom on a season-long loan with an option to buy.
However, Bordeaux were not willing to allow this, which has opened the door to Tottenham swooping in for Malcom as they have been linked with the young winger for some time now.
Liverpool have also been linked with the winger over the past few weeks.
But Liverpool’s interest appears to lie elsewhere, they have been most strongly linked with Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri who is likely to leave Stoke this summer after they were relegated last season.
So, it does appear that Spurs are the front-runners in the race to sign the Brazilian but it is unclear if Malcom will want to join Spurs as he must surely release he will only be used as a backup to Deli Ali, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min.
Spurs also have Erik Lamella and Lucas as sub wingers meaning Malcom would have to fight very hard for a regular spot at Spurs.
