Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur in for Barcelona winger?

Malcom linked with EPL move

North London giants Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur could reportedly go head-to-head to secure the services of Malcom from Barcelona this winter.

Malcom only joined the La Liga holders from Bordeaux during the summer after the Catalan giants beat AS Roma to his signature at the final hurdle.

However, the Brazilian has since struggled to work his way into the first-team setup with just 25 minutes of competitive action and he is now said to be weighing up his future with the Blaugrana.

According to Sport, the 21-year-old could seek a fresh challenge when the transfer window reopens at the turn of the year and his supposed availability has caught the attention of both Spurs and Arsenal.

Nevertheless, any proposed deal may only include a loan move for the remainder of the season and the Premier League giants are likely to face stiff competition from other clubs across Europe.

Malcom enjoyed a breakthrough season with Bordeaux last term where he contributed 12 goals and seven assists en route to their sixth place finish in the French Ligue 1.
