Everton in ‘advanced negotiations’ to sign Bordeaux star Malcom

Everton are in advanced negotiations to sign Bordeaux according to reports.

The Brazilian was one of the most highly talked about players back in the January transfer window, with Arsenal, Manchester United and Tottenham all linked with a move.

However despite being linked with ever increasingly expensive moves for the youngster, the Ligue 1 club were reluctant to sell their prized asset.

According to Malcom however, they have agreed to allow him to leave the club this summer, providing their asking price is met, and according to Sky Sports, it seems as though he could be set for a shock move to Everton.

It is claimed the Bordeaux chairman Stephane Martin will meet Everton representatives on Thursday, with a £30m deal plus add-ons set to be discussed.

The player will be offered a five-year-deal worth £80,000-a-week.

New Everton boss Marco Silva is yet to sign a player this summer since he was announced as Sam Allardyce’s replacement.

Wayne Rooney has so far been the only big name departure, joining MLS side D.C. United.
