Transfer Talk: Arsenal’s Bid For £50m Tottenham Target Revealed

By on March 5, 2018

The transfer window is closed but managers are working hard on their plans for the summer so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal made a January bid for Malcom…

Arsenal failed with a £37.5m bid for Tottenham target Malcom during the January transfer window after Bordeaux refused to cash-in on the attacker, according to a report in the Mirror.

Malcom has emerged as one of the top young talents in Europe since joining Bordeaux two years ago and he’s provided eight goals and seven assists in his 28 appearances in all competitions so far this season.

The Brazilian U23 international has caught the attention of clubs here in the Premier League with Arsenal and Tottenham both strongly linked with the winger over the past few months.

Widespread reports throughout the winter window suggested that both north London clubs had held talks about luring Malcom to England but a move failed to materialise and he ended up staying in France.

Now, details have emerged over how far Arsenal were prepared to go to sign the South American as the Mirror are citing a report from Bild that claims the Gunners tabled a £37.5m bid in January.

The German publication says Bordeaux turned down the offer and made it clear they weren’t prepared to sell their star player mid-season so Arsenal ended up signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang instead.

The Gunners and Spurs are both being tipped to renew their interest in signing Malcom this summer with the Mirror reporting last week that the north London duo are ready to battle over the £50m-rated winger.

However, they won’t be the only clubs in the running as the newspaper suggests that Borussia Dortmund have joined the chase to sign Malcom so it will be interesting to see if he ends up coming to the Premier League or opts for the Bundesliga this summer.
