Everton and Tottenham Hotspur will not be completing a move for Brazilian winger Malcom, says his agent. According to Fernando Garcia the Girondins de Bordeaux forward is very interested in a transfer to the Italian Serie A, with AS Roma and Internazionale leading the race.
“The player would like to come to Italy and Roma are very interested”, Garcia said. “In the next few hours, I will have a word with Monchi (Roma’s director of football).” Last week Inter has also been linked with a move for Malcom, but are yet to make an offer.
The Brazilian had an offer from Arsenal rejected by Bordeaux during the January window, but the club promised to sell him during the summer transfer window. Malcom joined the French side in January 2016, playing 96 games across all competitions and scoring 23 goals.
