Tottenham can still hope to sign Malcom in the summer after Arsenal snub loan deal

Arsenal pulled the plug on a deadline day loan deal for Malcom, which may raise Tottenham’s hopes that they can eventually sign him.

Arsenal pulled out of a deadline day loan deal to sign Barcelona’s Brazilian winger Malcom, according to the Sun.

The Gunners signed Barca wideman Denis Suarez yesterday and had the opportunity to land his team-mate Malcom, but apparently balked at the size of the loan fee being demanded to bring him in from the Nou Camp.

Despite reportedly allowing Suarez to join Arsenal for a £2m loan fee with a view to an £18m transfer at the end of the season, Barca did not want to allow Malcom to leave for a similar figure as they see him as a part of their plans long-term.

 

The report also claims that the scale of the fee put a notoriously frugal Tottenham off signing a player the Telegraph stated they were interested in during the 2018 January transfer window.

And if Malcom had gone to Arsenal, it would have killed any Tottenham hopes of eventually signing a player they have had their eye on (Telegraph) for over a year now.

Malcom has the feel of a player who would suit Spurs’ plans perfectly; versatile, quick, young and with a point to prove after his move to the Nou Camp has not panned out as planned so far.
