Well, Spurs were keen to snap the exciting Brazilian up during the January transfer window, but a deal could not be agreed between all parties with the club signing Lucas Moura from Paris Saint-Germain instead.
However, Le 10 Sport report that they have reignited their interest in the 21-year-old in a bid to finally get a deal over the line, which may not come as too much of a surprise given Moura has so far failed to make an impact, while Erik Lamela continues to struggle for consistency.
Le 10 Sport add that it is hoped that the north London club can come up with a proposal that would suit all parties, with Inter Milan not able to meet the Ligue 1 outfit’s demands and Chelsea only likely to move for him should they lose Eden Hazard this summer.
He certainly would be.
The right winger showed with 12 goals and eight assists in 38 appearances in all competitions for Bordeaux last term that he would be a brilliant buy with a huge future ahead of him, and he looks to be a player who could thrive under Mauricio Pochettino, who could boost his chances of landing a reported summer target if he lets a £100.000-a-week star move to the Bundesliga, at Spurs.
The arrival of the talented Brazilian at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would certainly leave Son Heung-Min fearing for his future at the club given his usual place on the right would be under severe threat, as well as the fact that he looks set to miss the start of the upcoming campaign to compete for South Korea in the Asian Games which could allow Malcom to cement his spot in the starting XI.
