​​Tottenham Hotspur may be back in the running to sign Bordeaux's much sought-after forward Malcom, after Arsenal have reportedly switched their attention to signing ​Borussia Dortmund's tenacious striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to replace the ​Manchester United-bound Alexis Sánchez.


As reported by the Telegraph, Sánchez's imminent exit from the Gunners is poised to set in motion a domino effect of transfer dealings, which could see Spurs capitalise by snatching Malcom from under their north London rivals' noses. The tenacious 20-year-old has wowed spectators in Ligue 1 this season, scoring seven goals and assisting a further five more in 17 starts.

With the Gunners expected to pay in the region of £50m for Aubameyang, it is unlikely that the board will sanction a further £40m required to prize Malcom away from Bordeaux. While Spurs boast a glittering array of attacking talents, their manager Mauricio Pochettino is bound to be planning to strengthening his squad in January, with a gruelling end of season run ahead.


Meanwhile, the Gunners are set to see midfielder Theo Walcott leave the club on a permanent basis, with ​E​verton putting the final touches to £20m deal to bring the former Southampton prodigy to Goodison Park. Walcott has spent over a decade with the Gunners, but has struggled to force his way into Wenger's first team selection in recent seasons.

Spurs are also thought to be in the hunt for ​Hoffenheim star midfielder Nadiem Amiri, after reports revealed that the 21-year-old has a release clause of just £15m​Arsenal and Man Utd are also thought to be in hot pursuit of the Bundesliga star, who has scored twice in 12 league matches so far this season.
