Arsenal have been given a boost in signing £40m-target Malcom as the Brazilian international will be made available by Bordeaux this summer.
The Brazilian forward is attracting strong interest from the Gunners and north London rivals Tottenham.
Bordeaux refused to sell in January despite Malcom, 20, making it clear that he wanted out.
Now boss Gus Poyet has conceded that Malcom, 20, will leave the French club “sooner or later” and could even be on his way as early as the end of the season.
Poyet said: “He’s a special player who can win matches on his own. He is often double-marked because his talent is that special.
“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.”
