Report: Spurs consider going back in for winger with £40m bid

It has hardly been a dream move to Barcelona for young Brazilian winger, Malcom, this past year, as he has struggled for game time in Spain.

Malcom moved from Bordeaux in the French League to Barca last summer for a fee of around £36.5m (BBC).

However, the winger only managed to rack up 24 appearances for the Spanish giants, scoring just four goals and racking up just two assists in his time on the pitch (Transfer Markt).

This contrasted his last season in France, in which he scored 12 and set up seven in 35 Ligue 1 games, something that caught Barcelona’s eye.

Despite his career stalling for a year in Spain, Malcom is still only 22-years-old, with plenty of growing, maturing, and improving still to come if he finds the right team.

Sport now claim that Tottenham are considering a £40.6m move for the Brazilian this summer, which comes after they were heavily linked with him in January (Sport).

Spurs Web Opinion:

A big no from me. It is always dangerous buying a player who has stalled in their progress for an entire season. I can also not see the logic in how Malcom’s price has increased despite a below-par season? Spurs should be securing deals for Sessegnon, Lo Celso, and one other in my opinion.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. No way are we in for Malcom. But to just be in for Lo celso and Sessegnon and not Dybala is a little dumb imo. If Sessegnon is a player we will get, which i think we will, he must be played as a winger. If not Rose leaves. Dybala must come to be an alternative in the attacking positions. It`s vital. Or we re-sign Llorente.

  2. Forget Malcom who was a failure at Barca & sign Zaha , keep Danny Rose sell Eriksen , sell Lamela , sell Aurier , sell the rest of the deadwood we have and Zaha would be available .
