At £35.3m Malcom would be a bargain for Tottenham Hotspur

The Brazilian is far cheaper than other potential Tottenham transfer targets.

Tottenham Hotspur are one of many teams in Europe who have long been linked with the services of Brazilian winger Malcom of Bordeaux. The talented attacker was excellent in Ligue 1 last season and has attracted the attention from teams such as Inter Milan and Bayern Munich.

This week, it is reported by Le10 Sport, that his potential signature has become even more enticing.

They claim that Bordeaux have reduced the asking price for the player from €50 million (£44.1m) to €40 million (£35.3m).

At that price, Tottenham must make a move for the 21-year-old, who scored 12 and assisted eight goals last season.

Whilst ten years ago such a fee would have seemed a lot for a club like Spurs it should be considered a bargain in the current market.

Tottenham clearly feel they need another wide option, as the club’s interest in Anthony Martial and Wilfried Zaha at the start of the summer showed.

But both of those players were valued at over £70 million by their respective clubs. Considering the talent and age of Malcom, the fact he is available for half the price of that pair makes him an absolute bargain.

Daniel Levy should undoubtedly sign off on this transfer if Mauricio Pochettino does decide to make his move.
