Liverpool could hijack move for exciting Ligue 1 winger

Bordeaux have offered Liverpool-target Malcom on loan to Inter Milan and will accept a £6-£7m loan fee for his services.

With Jürgen Klopp wanting backup to his incredible front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino, a multi-functional forward is being targeted and the likes of Xherdan Shaqiri and Gelson Martins have emerged as targets.

Malcom, a Brazilian winger plying his trade in France with Bordeaux, was on the Reds’ radar in January after Philippe Coutinho’s move to Barcelona.

In all competitions last season, the Ligue 1 winger scored 12 goals and provided 8 assists for teammates.

Inside Futbol cite Sky Italia, who report that Bordeaux have offered Malcom on loan to Inter Milan with the chance to buy him afterwards for £28 million. A loan fee would cost the Calcio A side £6-£7m.

Inter are firmly in the driving seat but the report indicates that Liverpool and Tottenham could resurrect their interest in the 21-year-old if they so wish. Bordeaux would prefer a bidding war as it would mean they could generate more from Malcom’s sale.

For now, it seems as though Inter are leading the race to sign the winger but things could change if either Spurs or Liverpool decide to act on their interest.
