Arsenal, Chelsea and Man Utd all targeting Brazilian wonderkid

According to the British media Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester United are all interested in signing Bordeaux youngster Malcom.

Arsenal did enquire about the 20-year-old last summer and have continued to monitor his progress, however, his stock has risen significantly and he will cost in excess of £30 Million now.

The Brazilian is under contract until 2021 and so time is on the French club side but with so many top clubs, all with large transfer budgets, hovering around then the chances are that the youngster will be sold, probably next summer.

Malcom has yet to feature for the Brazilian national team but has represented his country at various youth levels and it is only a matter of time before he makes a breakthrough to the senior squad.

Since joining Bordeaux he has played 63 times, scoring 13 goals and is seen as a hot prospect.

There is a possibility that a transfer will happen in January but it is thought that next summer is a more realistic date.
