As reported by The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur have emerged as favourites to sign exciting Bordeaux winger Malcom.
The paper say that Spurs have held talks over the last week with a view to securing his signature for £35m, although the player would not arrive in North London until the summer, with the French club hoping he stays until the end of the season.
With seven goals and six assists in French football this season, the Brazilian youth international is showing excellent promise and at just 20 years of age has plenty of room for improvement too.
Tottenham supporters certainly appear excited by his potential signing, believing he can add the attacking spark that can rejuvenate Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
They’ve lacked creativity at points this season and could do with attacking reinforcements to help Harry Kane continue his imperious goal scoring march.
Fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the reported deal…

Didn’t even know who Malcom was until this morning but there’s something about a Ligue 1 winger without an N in front of his name that really excites me..#COYS

I just watched Malcom highlights which means I can now confirm we won't be signing him. #COYS

It's all merry with the Malcom situation now. Just hope we can cough up the cash now.
Fingers crossed. #COYS

Malcom is a big signing if we make it but my god we need him to join the squad now not in the summer #COYS

I have ZERO knowledge of Malcom. But if Poch wants to drop £40m on him he must be a Belter of a player. We’ve needed a flair winger for years, let’s hope this is the real deal #coys
