Report: Barcelona want £54 million for Arsenal and Everton-linked Malcom

Barcelona would demand €60 million/£54 million if they are to sell Malcom this summer.

According to Marca, the Catalan giants are keen to make a profit on the £36.5 million Brazilian (BBC Sport) if he has to leave the Nou Camp, with a host of clubs apparently interested.

Two such clubs are Arsenal and Everton, who are both in the market for a new winger.

Barca’s huge asking price is likely going to put both Premier League clubs off, especially the Gunners who reportedly have just £45 million to spend this summer (before player sales).

Malcom has endured a very underwhelming stint at Barca since his move last summer from Bordeaux.

 

The South American started just six games in La Liga in 2018/19. In total, he made just 19 appearances.

TBR’s view

Having only signed him last year, it is little surprise to see Malcom slapped with such a high asking price, even after a poor season.

If Arsenal or Everton – the two Premier League teams linked most frequently of late – still want him, some serious negotiation will have to take place.

The Spanish heavyweights have just signed Antoine Griezmann, which would suggest they could be open to letting him leave for less than £54 million.

Malcom would improve both teams. Despite his struggles in 2018/19, he is still a superb winger who can shine with regular game time.
