Everton fans react to latest Malcom rumours

Everton fans celebrate when they realise that their local rivals Liverpool will not be winning the title during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Everton FC at...

Everton continue to be linked with Barcelona's Malcom.

Malcom of FC Barcelona controls the ball during the Spanish Copa del Rey match between Barcelona and Valencia at Estadio Benito Villamarin on May 25, 2019 in Seville.

Everton have signed three players from Barcelona since Marcel Brands' arrival as director of football – but it could become four this summer.

The Toffees landed Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina permanently last summer, as well as Andre Gomes on loan, before making his move permanent earlier this summer.

Now, RMC Sport report that Everton are set to offer €35million (£31million) for Barcelona winger Malcom, in the hope of finally bringing him to Goodison Park.

 

Everton were linked with Malcom last summer, when he was with Bordeaux, but ended up signing his compatriot Richarlison instead, with Malcom moving on to Barca.

He endured a miserable season with Barca, failing to prove himself to Ernesto Valverde, and he's now expected to leave Camp Nou this summer.

Already, conflicting reports are emerging about the Brazilian wide man, with the Liverpool ECHO claiming that Everton aren't actually planning a new move for the 22-year-old.

Malcom during the match between FC Barcelona angd Getafe, corresponding to the round 37 of the Liga Santander, played at the Camp Nou Stadium, on 12th May 2019, in Barcelona, Spain.

If Everton do move though, some fans feel that he would complete an impressive attack alongside Richarlison, especially having wanted one or the other last summer.

Some believe he'd be a better signing than Ajax ace David Neres, and whilst others think it may be a smokescreen, some are willing to laud Marcel Brands if he secures Malcom one year on from his initial interest.
