According to TalkSport, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is convinced of closing the transfer for Bordeaux winger Malcom. The Premier League heavyweights Arsenal have also been chasing the talented Brazilian, but Arsene Wenger has recently denied the possibility of any January signings.
Spurs manager wants to bring additional attacking quality to his squad. But according to the latest reports, the English side might loan the 20-year-old back to French team by the end of the season in case they manage to pull off this deal.
The former Corinthians forward has established himself as an indispensable first-team player for Bordeaux, who are not ready to give up on their star player this January.
The Girondins are looking to avoid relegation this year, and they need all help they can get.
Pochettino is determined to beat the competition from other big European clubs for Malcom’s signature, but the transfer will be most likely postponed until the summer.
