The Brazilian was heavily linked with Arsenal and Tottenham in the January transfer window, although speculation about a move to England has cooled since then.
Despite the fact many clubs have distanced themselves from making a move for him, Malcom has continued to state publicly that he would like a move away from Bordeaux. Just last month, he was quoted by the Daily Mail as saying:
“The Premier League is also a very interesting option. I learned the language quickly, had no major difficulties. French was much harder, so in England I would be fine, but in the end, I’d integrate anywhere.”
After the signings of both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan in January, the prospect of signing the Brazilian Under 23 international had diminished significantly.
However, with the loss of pace in wide areas since the departures of both Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott , the possibility snapping up a pacey winger like the Bordeaux star cannot be ruled out.
