Malcom accepts Arsenal’s offer – Medicals scheduled

Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.

Brazilian reporter Bruno Andrade claims that the Gunners are negotiating a deal to acquire Bazilian winger Malcolm from Bordeaux.

“I posted last week that Arsenal came into the fray for former Corinthians [player] Malcolm,” he tweeted.

“Today I hear that the conversations are progressing well.”

The 20-year-old has been strongly linked with an exit from the French club this winter after impressing with seven goals in 20 appearances so far this season.

In possession of a magical left foot, the Brazilian U20 star has proved his technicality with his long-range shooting ability on more than one occasion, as the above footage shows.

But he can also beat a man to whip a ball into the box – a good deal for a side with the aerial presence of Olivier Giroud.

If the Gunners do manage to seal the signing of the sought-after starlet, it would certainly prove a hit with the fans.

“He is a great assister, has a great eye for a pass, would work well in our side,” said one fan.

Another wrote: “Great dribbling skills, pace, very intelligent, plus he has a great strike in him.”

It comes as the club was also linked with a move for Monaco winger Thomas Lemar.

The Frenchman is said to be Arsenal’s priority target if they sell Alexis Sanchez this month.
