The Blues search for a top forward appears to have another twist with emerging reports claiming the Blues are looking to move for Bordeaux star Malcolm this summer.
The highly-rated winger has been the subject of intense speculation all year, with reports linking the 22- year- old to a host of Premier league clubs allegedly vying for his signature.
And citing reports from Sud-Quest as claimed by GFFN via twitter, Chelsea have moved ahead in the tussle to land the promising frontman with Malcolm’s representatives recently flying to England for talks with the London club.
Despite the uncertainty revolving around Manager Conte’s future, the Blues have been heavily linked with a host of forward amid reports Spanish triker Alvaro Morata could be set for a departure just barely a year since his arrival from Real Madrid.
The 25- year- old has reportedly grown disillusioned with life at Stamford Bridge and reports have suggested the Spanish International could be involved in a potential player- plus- cash swap deal for either Gonzalo Higuain or Mauro Icardi.
Though, the arrival of Malcom would represent a major coup, as he is immensely talented and possesses the necessary qualities to thrive in the Premier League.
