Liverpool favourites to sign Barcelona attacker?

Malcom wanted at Liverpool in the summer

Liverpool are reportedly keen on securing the signature of out-of-favour winger Malcom from Barcelona at the end of the campaign.

The 21-year-old only joined the Blaugrana from Bordeaux for £36.5m last summer but he has struggled for gametime with just one start in the Spanish La Liga.

According to Le 10 Sport, the attacker's situation has caught the eye of Jurgen Klopp's team, who have already contacted the Blaugrana regarding a summer agreement.

The Spanish champions are supposedly prepared to keep him in their ranks for another season but the Brazilian could yet push through a permanent switch amid his struggles under Ernesto Valverde.

Malcom, who was a leading performer at ex-club Bordeaux, has contributed just three goals during the ongoing campaign but one of those came against Real Madrid in the 1-1 Copa del Rey draw earlier this month.

Barcelona are said to value Malcom at around £50m at the moment despite his reduced playing time with the first-team. He has previously attracted interest from Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
