Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing the Brazilian ace.

Mauricio Pochettino manager

Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino will be desperate to bolster his squad before the transfer window slams shut, as he looks to guide his side to a sustained push for major honours on all fronts this season. 

One of the Argentine's key targets is Bordeaux ace Malcom, but they might just have to wait until the summer to secure a deal for the Brazilian, according to Brazilian media outlet UOL. Esporte.

UOL Esporte claimed earlier this week that Tottenham were close to agreeing a £44 million deal for the talented winger, but that has so far failed to materialise.

The Brazilian sports outlet claim today that the 20-year-old met with Mauricio Pochettino last week, and is extremely keen on a move to north London.

They suggest that a switch from Bordeaux to Spurs is most likely to happen in the summer, however, so Tottenham fans will have to wait a little while longer yet before they get to see what the Brazilian can do.

The 20-year-old has been in fine form in Ligue 1 so far this season, scoring seven goals and chipping in with five assists in 21 outings thus far.

He would undoubtedly offer Spurs something different in forward areas, and he could make all the difference for them in the tight games they face when teams who put 10 men behind the ball.
