Barcelona have officially completed the €42m signing of Brazilian winger Malcom from Bordeaux after successfully hijacking Roma's attempts to sign the coveted rising star.

Also previously rumoured as a target for Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton, Malcom has agreed a five-year contract with Barça that promises to keep him at Camp Nou until 2023.

The 21-year-old joins an already strong unit of Barça attackers and will hope to complement Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez, Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho.

He will link up with his new teammates on tour in the United States on Wednesday.

Malcom first arrived in Europe in 2016 when he joined Bordeaux from Brazilian club Corithians. He had made his debut in the Brasileiro in 2014 shortly after his 17th birthday.


Last season, Malcom scored 12 Ligue 1 goals for Bordeaux, only one fewer than Kylian Mbappe managed for champions Paris Saint-Germain, while he also provided a further seven assists.
