Brazilian winger Malcom insists he will leave Bordeaux this summer amid interest from Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United.
Spurs emerged as favourites to sign the 20-year-old in January, but a deal failed to materialise.
Instead, Tottenham moved for another Brazilian winger from Ligue 1, Lucas Moura, who joined for around £25 million on deadline day.
There is still believed to interest in Malcom from Spurs, however, and the player himself says he will decide on his next club soon.
“I have given my word to Bordeaux that I’ll continue so as to be able to have more time to choose my future club,” he said. (Quotes via ESPN.)
“These three or four months will make a big difference. Yes, Bordeaux have given me their word I can leave in June. I’m going to choose my next club and Bordeaux will let me leave.”
The question is: do Tottenham still need Malcom? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
