Rumours linking Everton with a move for Barcelona winger Malcom have resurfaced. According to French media outlet RMC Sport, Malcom is a £30m-plus target for Everton this summer.
Malcom has struggled since his move from Bordeaux to Barcelona last summer. And the Catalan club are ready to take a hit on him by selling the winger this window.
The 22-year-old scored four goals last season and provided two assists but was limited to just 24 games. Barcelona are prepared to let the Brazilian winger leave with Everton keen.
Everton face a battle with Arsenal for Malcom. But the Gunners seem to have their hearts set on Wilfried Zaha. This could present Marco Silva’s men with a window of opportunity.
Silva wants Malcom to complete a Brazilian-themed attacking midfield line alongside Richarlison and Bernard. The trio could prove to be a devastating combination for club and country in the future.
Everton fans took to Twitter to discuss whether Malcom would be a good signing. Here are several tweets from Toffees supporters on the recent Malcom links.

I hope this comes true but I would imagine a host of other teams vying for his signature.

Think Malcom would be an excellent acquisition. The lad has ample speed and can play in any of the front line positions. We could find it difficult to sign Malcom if it’s correct Arsenal are after him also.
