Till now it was Arsenal who were leading the race to grab this Brazilian, but now it seems they have got a stiff competition aside. Their Premier League rivals Tottenham could be about to beat Arsenal to the signing of Malcolm. According to the recent reports, the Spurs are ahead of everyone to land the 21-year-old youngster, whom with Manchester City were previously linked to. The deal could go as much as £40m, which would be a dream move for the young potential.
Malcom is a guy who can add some serious additional flair and attacking threat to Mauricio Pochettino’s side. The Brazilian winger was previously linked to Arsenal as the replacement of Alexis Sanchez, but the move has now got pole shifting change since Tottenham entered into the race. Whoever get this guy may present the English League a sunshine Brazilian young man. The Brazilian had already expressed his fascinations about the Premier League and Tottenham is hopeful about their £30m initial transfer fee, with a further £10m with some potential add one.
Malcom is known for his individual brilliance. A match winner due to his ability to conjure moments. He joined Bordeaux from Corinthians for £4m two years ago and had 7 goals with 11 assists in his first season there. He is seen comfortable at any position in the forward line but loves to finish with his left foot by cutting inside from the right flank. He got electrifying pace which might help him in the frantic nature of Premier League. He loves to score, has got the vision for them and likes long rangers too.
Spurs already have one of the deadliest forward line up, but lack that much needed catalyst off the bench to turn the fire. One can’t say Harry Kane needs more support, where Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Mousa Dembele and an in-form Heung-min Son all providing the England man with ample chances to score, but this side need some backups, where Malcom would be a perfect novish to learn at.
The arrival of another winger will provide Eriksen his own more natural Central position. His creativity might help Kane more to score and added pace in the wing along with lovely Son, could make Spur’s frontline virtually unplayable. Malcom can be a devastating option too for Pochettino as an impact substitute against tiring defences.
Having much chances to qualify in the Champions League next season, Tottenham offer a lucrative place for Malcom to fit in. Bayern Munich are looking for new talents as they have also contacted him with proposals, but it seems moving to Germany is far away in near future as in a recent interview, he said that he is learning English. When he was asked why, he replied that English is most important language in world and it would help him to grow in England. He also expressed his desire to play for a elite European club and win the Champions League.
Tottenham would be a great place for the Brazilian to grow in football and he might regret if refuse the deal.
