Brazil U23 Star Malcom is one of the most sought-after youngsters in the world after his breakthrough season with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux this season.

The young Brazil international is being tracked by Premier League giants including Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Due to his impressive performances for Bordeaux, Malcom has seen is value risen from just £4m to £40m in just two years of action with the French club.

Liverpool are in search of a replacement for Emre Can who is set to depart the Reds in the summer, with Juventus being tipped to be his next destination. Though Klopp is linked with a move for Lyon star Nabil Fekir, the German tactician is also eyeing a move as part of his mission to replace his compatriot.

Arsenal are also in the race for the 21-year-old midfielder. The Gunners midfield haven’t been too strong this season as Mesut Ozil was an inconsistent player all through the campaign. The Gunners incoming manager will definitely want to have a player of Malcom’s quality in his team next season.

Just as Liverpool, Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochetino is presently preparing for life without Moussa Dembele, who is reportedly set to move out of Wembley Stadium by the close of the season.

The Belgian has been phenomenal for the North London Club in their race for a top-four finish but he seems ready to move on with his career elsewhere.

Pochetino is now eyeing the Brazilian player as his possible replacement in the summer.
