Everton are reportedly in advanced talks to sign Bordeaux winger Malcom.
The Brazilian, who has scored 20 goals in 84 appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit, had been attracting interest from Arsenal in January, though it appears Marco Silva’s side are in a promising position to sign the highly rated forward.
Capped once at U23 level for Brazil though yet to make an appearance for the seniors, Malcom at the age of 21 is considered to be one of Ligue 1’s biggest future stars, and his potential arrival at Goodison Park is likely to excite fans of the Toffees as they go in search of a redeeming 2018/19 campaign after a dismal showing last season.
For Malcom, a move to Merseyside would present a truly outstanding opportunity to test himself as well as reap the financial rewards the Premier League has to offer. If Everton are able to secure this singing, adding to the forward players they already possess, including Yannick Bolasie, Theo Walcott and Cenk Tosun, then 2018/19 could truly be an exciting for Silva’s side as they pursue domestic glory and push for an elusive Champions League qualification.
