Tottenham Hotspur have passed Arsenal as the favourites to lure Bordeaux attacker Malcom to the Premier League, according to a story.
The 20-year-old will be permitted to depart the Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux if his valuation, said to be around £35m, is met in full by one of the numerous interested sides.
After Liverpool and Manchester United pulled out of the hunt, The Telegraph suggests that Tottenham have pounced by arranging to meet the Brazilian’s officials.
Malcom is believed to be open to making the switch. However, the move may now be postponed until the end of the season to appease Ligue 1 strugglers Bordeaux.
The Tottenham are expected to shake hands on a deal in the coming days, having also agreed to spend up to £8.8m in add-ons for the promising winger.
