Bordeaux attacker to snub Man Utd, Tottenham in favour of Arsenal

Bordeaux attacker to snub Man Utd, Tottenham in favour of Arsenal”

ARSENE WENGER is preparing to axe Alexis Sanchez from the Arsenal squad to face Bournemouth today.

Reports suggest the Gunners are closing in on a £45million deal for Malcom and are increasingly confident of signing the 20-year-old Brazilian. "We are not on that case at the moment", he told a news conference on Friday.

Malcom has developed in to one of the most exciting young talents in French football over the past two years since joining Bordeaux from Corinthians in January 2016.

"I don't rule it out - at the back, in midfield or upfront", he said. You reduce the number of players or increase the wages trying to fight with massive clubs as the difference in wages between the big, big clubs financially, I speak, and us has become big. "In this transfer market it's very hard".

The Gunners, who maintain they have yet to receive an approach for their forward, have been linked with Bordeaux's Brazilian Malcom as a possible replacement but Wenger is still hoping they can persuade the Chiliean to stay with them until the summer at least.

Wenger, though, insists the situation could not have been handled differently.

Contrary to comedy rumours that he will play "in the middle", Malcom is a wonderfully gifted, incredibly quick wide player who likes to cut inside from the right wing. "I don't know but probably this weekend he is going to defend Arsenal colours, so I don't think it's correct to say things about Alexis Sanchez".

"It is something you can not change".
