Liverpool to hold negotiations with agent of £40.5m-rated star

The representative of Bordeaux ace Malcom is flying to England to hold negotiations with Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, according to reports.

The highly-rated winger has looked possibly to swap the French top-flight for the EPL this summer, having almost left in the January transfer market.

With Chile international Alexis Sanchez’ future undetermined in early January, the 21-year old Brazilian wonderkid appeared to be the most likely substitution for the Gunners.

Paper talk had suggested the Gunners would return with a summer swoop for the winger, but the Italian sports television channel Premium Sport, as quoted by talkSPORT, claim that Spurs and the Reds have stolen a march.

Now, reports suggest that Malcom’s entourage is England bound to hold negotiations, with the agent interested to hear both side’s thoughts before making a decision.

Brazil U23’s international also has interested clubs in other European leagues, with the Serie A giants Inter Milan said to be interested to secure the signature of the impressive attacker.

Malcom enjoyed a rather productive season with the French side Bordeaux, netting 12 goals and picking up 8 assists in 38 appearances for Les Girondins.
