Report: Tottenham-linked Malcom to join Inter Milan

Daniel Levy (R) looks on during the Premier League match between West Bromwich Albion and Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns on October 15, 2016 in West Bromwich, England.

Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with Malcom in recent days and weeks.

Tottenham Hotspur have been heavily linked with a move for Malcom in recent weeks, but it looks like the Brazilian only has eyes for another club.

According to French outlet Le10 Sport, Tottenham, who were linked with Malcom in January, were still keen on the 21-year-old winger and made contact with Bordeaux this week over signing him.

One Football claimed that Spurs were favourites to sign the Brazil Under-23 star, but that looks wide of the mark.

Italian publication Tuttomercato have now reported that Malcom wants to join Inter Milan and will sign a five-year contract with the Serie A giants soon.

The report adds that he will receive around £2.2 million per year in salary, and that Inter will pay an £8.8 million loan fee initially, and a further £26.4 million next summer if they want him outright.

The salary equates to around £44,000 per week and would fall well within Tottenham's wage structure, and the reported transfer fee would hardly deter Daniel Levy, though it's a steep loan fee and perhaps the Lilywhites chairman was not willing to pay it for someone unproven in England.
