Spurs weighing up needless move for Malcom

This article is part of Football FanCast’s Transfer Focus series, which provides opinion and analysis on recent transfer news…

Tottenham Hotspur are considering a bid for Barcelona winger Malcom, according to Sport.

What’s the word?

Spurs have made two senior signings this summer, with Tanguy Ndombele arriving from Lyon and Jack Clarke joining from Leeds United, though the latter has been loaned back to Elland Road.

And the Spanish outlet claims that Barca are willing to cash in on the Brazilian, as they look to receive €45m (£40.6m).

Spurs are said to have sounded out the Liga giants over the possibility of a deal, while Everton and Arsenal are also reported to be interested.

The Toffees, Sport claims, have already made a bid worth well below his asking price, while the Gunners are now lining up a move for Lille’s Nicolas Pepe, with the newspaper claiming that deal could see them cool their interest in the Barca star.

Not the priority

Spurs don’t need another winger.

The club have a number of fluid attacking players, such as Heung-min Son, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela, Lucas Moura and Christian Eriksen, with every single player a multifunctional talent.

What Spurs need is depth in defence.

After Kieran Trippier departed for Atletico Madrid and Danny Rose was left out of the club’s squad for their pre-season tour in order to explore other opportunities, Spurs need bodies at the back.

Bringing in Malcom would be an interesting signing, but it does not do anything to address the squad’s current glaring deficiencies.
