Arsenal to reignite interest in Bordeaux attacker Malcom?

The Premier League giants Arsenal have reportedly intend to revive their interest in the Brazilian youngster Malcom from Bordeaux at the end of the season, according to the London Evening Standard.

Bordeaux head-coach Gus Poyet has refused to conduct business with English clubs amid growing interest in the 20-year-old attacker last month.

The Gunners instead focused their eyes elsewhere as they raced to lure Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to the north London outfit, adding to the earlier arrival of the 20-year-old defender Konstantinos Mavropanos.

The report suggests, however, Arsenal will further bolster in the attack later this year by reigniting their interest in Malcom, who is said to be on the list of targets for Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

Malcom, who is yet to be capped at senior level by Brazil, is believed to be valued around at £45m by the Ligue 1 outfit.
