The January transfer window may be shut but there’s still plenty of news from the rumour mill with several moves being put off until the summer.

Here, we round-up the transfer tales that have got everyone talking on Tuesday.

MALCOM 

Arsenal and Tottenham face competition from China for Bordeaux wonderkid Malcom, according to Telefoot.

Bordeaux are believed to be looking for more than £55m – a fee Arsenal and Tottenham are reportedly unwilling to pay.

Malcom has been one of the mainstays in a struggling Bordeaux side this season, scoring eight goals and providing five assists in 21 games.

RATING: 7/10

VERDICT

Although his club are currently eighth in Ligue 1, Malcom has been taking the league by storm with his glittering footwork and passing ability.

As Arsenal and Tottenham looks to strengthen his squad for next season, the young Brazilian could inject more class in an already star-studded attack.

Although £55 million is an expensive asking price, both clubs believe a fee of £33 million could be enough to get the deal over the line.

KEREM DEMIRBAY

Liverpool and Arsenal have agreed to meet the £28 million release clause of Hoffenheim star Kerem Demirbay, reports Sport Bild.

The 24-year-old midfielder is a man in demand and two of Premier League’s elite are battling it out to secure his signature this summer.

Despite widespread reports that Bayern Munich have already secured a deal with Demirbay – who only signed a new contract last season – Arsenal and Liverpool are ready to nip in and agree a deal with the German international.

RATING: 6/10

VERDICT

Demirbay is one of the new stars of German football and could be a key man for Joachim Low’s side during this summer’s World Cup.

With Hoffenheim struggling at present, the 24-year-old could opt to pursue a new challenge in Premier League instead as Liverpool and Arsenal look for a midfielder capable of pulling the strings for years to come.
