According to Sky Sports Bordeaux’s Brazilian attacker Malcom has emerged as a target for Tottenham.
There were reports in the last few days that said that Spurs had a £31m but the article says that they are understood to be incorrect, but we do face a fight to land the highly-coveted 20-year-old.
The article adds that reports have claimed that Manchester United and Bayern Munich are also interested in the player, and that Bordeaux are looking for a fee as high as £50m.
The article goes on to describe how Malcom moved to the Ligue 1 club from Corinthians just a year ago for a fee in the region of £9m.
He came through Corinthians’ youth ranks and has two caps for Brazil’s U23 team. He has scored seven goals in 20 appearances so far this season.
The article adds that Spurs are considering him as one of a number of options but the club do not expect too much activity next month.
