Arsenal fans left surprised by Everton’s pursuit of Malcom

Arsenal manager Unai Emery has been busy in the transfer window, but there is one area of the pitch that could do with some tweaking.

A new winger would complement the club’s activity so far, which has included the signings of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Bernd Leno, Sokratis, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi.

Bordeaux star Malcom has been linked to the North London outfit in the past, while Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have also been registered with an interest.

However, according to Sky Sports News reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Everton are in advanced talks with the Brazilian over a £30m move.

The Merseyside outfit have come out of nowhere to seemingly blow their competitors out of the water.

Whether a deal is close to completion remains to be seen, but it would be a huge coup if the Toffees sealed the 21-year-old’s signature.

Since making the move to Bordeaux from Corinthians, Malcom has scored 20 goals and recorded 13 assists in Ligue 1.

After the news broke, some Arsenal fans expressed their surprise in Everton’s approach, while others urged the Gunners to scupper the deal.
