Brazilian starlet Malcom wants to secure a summer move to England, with a number of Premier League clubs chasing his signature.
Sources close to the Bordeaux sensation have confirmed to me that the 20-year-old has his heart set on a move to the Premier League.
Malcom, who moved to France from Corinthians in January 2016, has long been linked with a move across the Channel – but it looks like he will get his dream move this summer with Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United all linked.
Bordeaux’s head coach Gus Poyet has admitted that he thinks Malcom will be on his way.
“He’s a special player who can win matches on his own. He is often double-marked because his talent is that special,” said Poyet.
“In January we were nervous because we almost lost him to the Premier League. We must prepare for this because sooner or later he will leave.”
This came after the player himself revealed earlier this month that he is ready to make a move this summer..
“I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go. I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot,” he said.
“I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club. These next three or four months will make a big difference.”
