Malcom confirms he is going to Arsenal

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.

Malcom has admitted that he would be willing to move to the Premier League after reports linking him with both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur emerged this month.

Arsenal has been touted as a possible destination for the Bordeaux winger as Arsene Wenger looks to reinforce his frontline in the wake of Alexis Sanchez’s move to Manchester United.

The Gunners’ local rivals Tottenham have also been credited with an interest in the 20-year-old Brazilian as Mauricio Pochettino aims to strengthen his squad.

For now though, the forward remains at Bordeaux, but Malcom has admitted that playing in the Premier League one day would be a dream come true.

Malcom is quoted as saying by Metro: “I don’t know [if a transfer will happen]. If I do leave, that would be fine.

“I will be grateful to Bordeaux, that’s life. If I have to stay I will, and I will do my job.

“It is true that England is a dream for every player.”

Malcom has been displaying brilliant form for Bordeaux this season, scoring seven goals and providing five assists in 21 Ligue 1 games for the French side.

Tottenham and Arsenal look set to battle it out for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season as both north London sides look to land Champions League qualification.

Arsenal missed out on a spot in this season’s Champions League after they finished in fifth place last season and had to settle for the Europa League.
