Brazil star Malcom is ready to snub Tottenham to join Arsenal, according to reports.
The Bordeaux midfielder is wanted by a host of clubs including the North London duo and Manchester United.
But reports in Brazil claim both clubs have met with the 20-year-old’s agent and the preferred choice is at the Emirates.
It is suggested that a deal will be struck between the clubs if the Gunners sell Alexis Sanchez to Manchester City this month.
And the price could be as much as £44million to land the former Corinthians star.
But Wenger played down talk of a move saying: “He is a good player but nothing is happening. We are not on that case at the moment.”
Malcom is one of the hottest properties in football right now
Arsene Wenger seems resigned to losing Alexis Sanchez and will need a replacement to appease the already-angry fans.
Malcom has hit seven league goals in 18 appearances this season and dropped a huge hint about his future on social media.
The youngster posted a picture of himself learning English on Instagram saying: “Allez, come on.”
Despite Malcom’s stand out performances this term, Bordeaux are just two points above the drop zone in Ligue 1.
