Tottenham are “in the box seat” to sign Bordeaux winger Malcom, according to Sky Sports.
The 20-year-old Brazilian has also been linked with Manchester United and Arsenal, but Spurs have emerged as favourites to get him.
However, Bordeaux have confirmed Malcom won’t be leaving the Ligue 1 club this month.
Sky Sports claim Mauricio Pochettino is “prepared to buy him now and loan him back to Bordeaux for the rest of the season.”
Malcom’s current employers are believed to value him at around £40 million.
