Tottenham Hotspur are ready to drop their interest in Bordeaux winger Malcom because the French club want £45m for the 20-year-old, although north London rivals Arsenal are still interested in signing the Brazilian.
Bordeaux’s valuation has prompted Tottenham to focus on other transfer targets which could include Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez. Malcom has impressed in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 7 goals in 20 games for his club, which has caught the eye of some of Europe’s top clubs.
Mauricio Pochettino was asked in his pre-Everton press conference about Tottenham’s activity in the January transfer window, to which the manager stated that the club are not close to any deals.
Tottenham have failed to sign any players in the previous two winter transfer windows, to the frustration of some fans who feel we have missed opportunities to push on and compete.
