Malcom

Arsenal have been linked with a move for Barcelona attacker Malcom all summer but it appears they have strong competition within the Premier League from Everton.

With Barcelona working to a complete an ambitious, and costly, double swoop of Antoine Griezmann and Neymar, the Catalan giants will need to offload players in order to facilitate both moves.

One player widely anticipated to be leaving is Malcom and Everton are expected to offer €35 million for the winger, according to Spanish daily Sport, just a year on from Barca forking out €40m to Bordeaux.

Everton have a good relationship with the Spanish side having already acquired Andre Gomes, Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina over the last year.

But Arsenal remain in the hunt, although, any bid hinges on the Gunners’ ability to sign their top target, Crystal Palace talent Wilfried Zaha.

However, with Palace pricing Unai Emery’s outfit out of a move, they could soon switch their attention to Malcom.
