Arsenal are closing in on completing the signing of Bordeaux attacking midfielder Malcom, with the deal expected to be finalised this week, according to reports.
There had been speculation surrounding the Gunners' interest in the young playmaker, who see him as a replacement for wantaway Alexis Sanchez.
However, Brazilian news outlet GloboEsporte.com have since confirmed an offer in the region of €50m (£44.5m) has indeed been tabled by Arsene Wenger's outfit, and it seems the Ligue 1 side are willing to allow their star to depart for the aforementioned figure.

Ozil staying. Wilshere staying. Aubameyang and Malcom in. They are looking at a defender as well ( not Evans ). Walcott and Sanchez off. I think we will end up having a good window. A good season? Not sure.— The Bottom Corner (@TheBottomCorner) January 15, 2018
