After signing Lucas in January, it`s unlikely that we will be interested in another Brazilian winger in the summer, but that hasn`t stopped Bordeaux star Malcom speaking out once again about a possible transfer.
We were reportedly among a number of clubs watching the 21 year old, along with Arsenal, while Bayern Munich have publicly stated they are watching the pacey winger. In an interview with French publication Sud-Ouest (via Sport Witness), the midfielder was asked about the speculation:
‘On Instagram, people put me in Arsenal, Tottenham or Bayern shirts. Even if it`s my dream, it makes me laugh. I play for Bordeaux. At the moment, that`s all I think about.’
His record in France this season has been very good with eight goals and seven assists to his name from 29 appearances. It would however be a big surprise if we did re-enter the race for the player considering our abundance of options in wide areas.
With an experienced international like Lucas failing to even get off the bench against Bournemouth at the weekend, it demonstrates the real strength we have at the moment.
Personally, I can`t see us making sizeable bid for another player in the same position anytime soon, even if the player in question is very promising. What do you think? Let me know in the comments.
