Chelsea are among a host of teams pursuing Bordeaux winger Malcom, according to Mercato365.com.
The 20 year old’s performances this season have led to the Blues, Arsenal and Manchester United sending scouts to keep an eye on the midfielder. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have also reportedly started tracking the Brazilian.
Malcom signed from Corinthians in June 2016, and his first season in France was very successful. He was still a teenager when he made the move to Europe, but the winger adapted well to his new country, scoring nine times and providing seven assists in 45 matches last campaign.
The Brazilian under 20 international has continued his form this season, having scored five goals already in just 15 appearances. Mercato365 report that Bordeaux rate the player so highly that they don’t believe Serie A clubs such as Inter Milan, AC Milan or Roma can afford Malcom, leaving the door open for Premier League clubs and Europe’s elite to make their move for the player.
