Chilean star player Alexis Sanchez is ready to leave Arsenal any time soon, and the gunners are in the market right now to sign a new superstar to replace the former Barcelona man.
Brazilian star player Malcolm has been in the news recently due to his talents and his links with Arsenal – as well as other clubs like Manchester United.
But according to Daily Mail, Arsene Wenger’s side are prepared to do all it takes to get the player’s signature, and his club – Bordeaux – won’t mind accepting a fee of £45 million to allow him to leave.
Manchester United are ready to wait till next summer to make a move for the samba star, but Arsenal are reportedly keen on signing him very soon and are working towards reaching an agreement with his agent, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
Marzio, however, suggested that the timing of Sanchez’s departure could influence Arsenal’s decisions in regards to Malcolm’s signing.
The 20-year-old is a superb player who has caught the attention of various top European clubs with his talents.
This season so far in 18 Ligue 1 games, he has scored 7 goals and has provided 4 assists to his teammates.
Do you think Malcolm is too young to replace Alexis Sanchez at the Emirates Stadium? Should Arsenal splash £45M on him?
