According to renowned transfer expert Gianluca Di Marzio, North London side Arsenal have met with Bordeaux star Malcom’s representative as they step up their chase of the Brazilian.
With Chilean Alexis Sanchez now in the last six months of his Arsenal contract, the likelihood of the forward leaving the club is growing.
In turn, the club will have to replace their star man to not only appease fans over selling one of their best footballers but also to make sure they don’t continue to suffer more disappointment.
According to the expert, the Gunners have reportedly held a meeting with his representative outside Bordeaux, while he is believed to be valued at about €50million.
The 20-year-old forward must be doing a lot of things right, as the Metro mentioned how Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspurs are also keen, and his playing form this campaign would surely have attracted more focus.
The youngster has netted seven goals and made five assists in 21 matches for the French Ligue 1 team, and so while the striker still has a lot to prove and a couple of development in his playing attribute, he’s shown a lot of early promising signs.
Losing the Chilean is going to be a major blow, as although the South American hasn’t replicated his form this campaign, last season the forward showed that he can be a pivotal figure for Arsenal up front.
