Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur target Malcom has confirmed he will leave Bordeaux at the end of the season, with a move to the Premier League likely.

The 20-year-old was looking to leave the League 1 side in January with the trio of clubs all chasing his signature as Liverpool and Arsenal looked to replace Philippe Coutinho and Alexis Sanchez respectively.

However his exit was blocked by Bordeaux hiring Gus Poyet as their new manager but Malcom now insists he has an agreement in place to leave the club in the summer.

“Yes, there was a promise that I will be negotiating in June,” Malcom told Brazilian outlet UOL. “I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go.

“I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot.

“I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club.

“These next three or four months will make a big difference.”
