Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Malcom from Barcelona this summer, per Mundo Deportivo.
The Brazilian winger is reportedly set for talks over his future with the Catalan giants in the coming weeks.
The report states that the former Bordeaux winger is keen to stay at the club for at least another season but that those at the Camp Nou regard him as a saleable asset in this transfer window.
Spurs and Arsenal are both said to have registered their interest in signing the 22-year-old, who joined Barca for a £36.5m fee from the French club last summer, while Inter Milan are also monitoring his situation.
He flattered to deceive in 2018/19, however, scoring just four goals and laying on two assists in all competitions. Malcom has also yet to be capped by Brazil.
Should Mauricio Pochettino’s men be targeting a move for the star, then, as they look to secure their first signing since January 2018?
Football FanCast’s writers give their verdicts below!
“Malcom is a player who seems to divide opinion, and his career after moving to Barcelona has hit a stumbling block. Spurs could be the place where he rejuvenates himself but I have my doubts over whether he’d be able to cut it in the Premier League. On reflection, this is one Spurs should stay away from.”
“I think Malcom would be a good signing, but should definitely not be a priority. Pondering over whether or not to start Harry Kane of all people in a Champions League final shows that Spurs are fairly well stocked in attack, and it is midfield where they need the bulk of their reinforcements as well as full-back. A nice deadline day signing if it happens, but definitely not one to be viewed as a priority.”
“A move for Malcom this summer could be a good move for Spurs, he’s had a torrid time at Barcelona, but by no means is that reason to write a player off completely. Lucas Digne and Andre Gomes were both brilliant last season at Everton after poor spells at Camp Nou. If Malcom can rediscover the form that he showed at Bordeaux then he would be a great addition.”
