Chelsea in talks over Brazilian wonderkid

Chelsea are reportedly looking into the possibility of signing Brazilian winger Malcom this summer.

The Blues have already held talks with Bordeaux representatives over a transfer for the youngster, and face strict competition from the likes of Liverpool and Spurs.

Malcom is one of the brightest up and coming talents in world football and has set Ligue 1 alight over the past few seasons, most recently completing the 17/18 season with 12 goals and 7 assists in 35 appearances.

He was heavily linked with a move away during the January transfer window, but Bordeaux stood firm and prevented their star asset from leaving midway through the season. Now, with the star admitting he would like to move on from France, it is increasingly likely he will be on the move.

It is understood that Bordeaux will want a fee of at least £45m for Malcom, and Chelsea are hot favourites to wrap up a deal ahead of the competition.

It remains to be seen who will lead Chelsea into next season, but whether it’s Conte, Sarri or anyone else for that matter, Malcom will be a welcomed addition to the club.
