Metro Sport says we are ready to make a January move to sign young Ajax attacker David Neres as they look for alternatives to Bordeaux playmaker Malcom.
The article says we are battling north London rivals Arsenal for the signature of Malcom, who has lit up Ligue 1 since leaving Corinthians in his native Brazil but the French side are adamant he will not be sold.
Gus Poyet, former Spurs player and assistant manager,was unveiled as Bordeaux’s new manager on Monday, and the article said the Uruguayan confirmed as much in his first press conference: ‘I asked straight away if Malcom would be staying or not and they said yes.’
It goes on to say that according to Goal Brasil, the club have wasted little time in moving on from Malcom and are already lining up a transfer offer for his compatriot Neres.
The article says we are prepared to spend as much as £44 million (€50m) to land the 20-year-old, who has been in Europe for just over a year after leaving Sao Paulo for Amsterdam in the previous January window.
