Barcelona tell Malcom he can leave for £55m as they look to cash-in on Arsenal, Tottenham target

Barcelona are willing to allow Arsenal, Everton and Tottenham target Malcom leave for £55million. 

The Catalan club signed the Brazilian from Bordeaux for £37million last summer but he struggled for game time at the Nou Camp. 

They want to cash in on the 22-year-old and have told the player’s representatives that he can leave for no less than £55m, according to Marca.

Malcom’s representatives reportedly asked which teams had shown an interest in their promising young attacker. 

They did not demand a transfer and he has not handed in a transfer request or declared an intention to leave. 

But it appears that the forward would face an even more difficult struggle to make the first team next season with the addition of Antoine Griezmann.

The former Corinthians academy star is attracting plenty of attention from the Premier League with both north London clubs Arsenal and Tottenham competing with Everton. 

The Gunners are looking at ‘very big, very expensive’ players according to Unai Emery despite the fact that Josh Kroenke has said they are operating on a ‘Europa League budget with a Champions League wage bill’.    

Malcom’s situation would be further complicated if Neymar manages to force a move back to Barcelona as they would have to get rid of one of their non-EU players.
