Barcelona forward Malcom has reportedly agreed to personal terms with Russian Premier League giants Zenit St. Petersburg ahead of a move this summer.

This is according to the publication from the stables of popular Italian news outlet Calciomercato which claimed that the Brazilian attacker has agreed to a €6m yearly salary with the Russian club.

Malcom will leave Barcelona after just one year at the club.

The 21-year-old never got to grips with life at the Nou Camp.

He was linked with a loan move to Arsenal earlier this summer but the winger will move to Russia after Barcelona and Zenit St. Petersburg agreed to a transfer fee for him.

Malcom joined Barcelona from former French champions Bordeaux last summer in a deal reported to be around €41m.

Barcelona hijacked the move from the grasp of Italian Serie A giants AS Roma who were so close to agreeing to a deal for him.

He was on the outskirts of the Barcelona team for the majority of the last campaign and the signing of French forward Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid this summer has pushed him further down the pecking order in the forward positions at the Nou Camp.

Barcelona spent €120m to sign the aforementioned Griezmann.
