Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are going to put maximum effort to sign Bordeaux wonderkid Malcom next summer according to the Evening Standard.
The 20-year-old Brazilian winger has been a revelation in the Ligue 1, showing great potential over the last couple of months.
The Spurs boss, Mauricio Pochettino, has identified the former Corinthians star as a prime target for the January transfer window, but the £45 million price tag has scared him off.
However, the Argentinean expert will try again next summer, even though Lucas Moura arrived at Wembley recently.
Despite breaking club’s transfer record to bring Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from Borussia Dortmund, manager Arsene Wenger can’t reconcile with the loss of Alexis Sanchez and is willing to invest huge money to replace him.
The Girondins have barely managed to keep Malcom this winter due to intense pressure from several Premier League sides, as they are desperately trying to avoid relegation this year.
However, the skilfull winger will most likely leave France at the end of the current campaign, and Premier League appear to be the most likely destination.
