According to what has been reported by Spanish outlet Sport
, Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Barcelona’s Brazilian winger Malcom. Malcom, who nearly joined Roma in the summer before Barcelona sabotaged the deal at the last moment – leading him to depart Bordeaux for Spain rather than Italy.
Malcom hasn’t been given much of a chance at Barcelona, growing uneasy at a lack of game-time – and reportedly has an offer from China on the table but now Barcelona appear to be prepared to deal with Spurs.
Barca signed Malcom for around €40m in the summer and has been linked also, in recent weeks, with a move to Serie A side Lazio. Lazio, however, would likely not have the funds to match Chinese offers or that of Spurs; so would have to ask for the Brazilian on loan. Barcelona are likely to want him off the books, accepting that it was a transfer misfire that did not go to plan.
