Manchester United and Arsenal target Malcom having English lessons ahead of potential Premier League transfer
Reports have claimed that Jose Mourinho’s side have already held talks with Bordeaux about a £40 million deal for the 20-year-old winger.
But Arsenal are also interested in the Brazilian and have reportedly entered negotiations over a transfer this month.
Malcom has now given a strong indication that the Premier League could be his next destination after revealing on Instagram that he is learning English.
Last month, Bordeaux insisted that Malcom would not be allowed to leave the club in the January transfer window.
‘He will not leave this winter,’ the Ligue 1 club’s president Stephane Martin told L’Equipe.
‘What if we go an immediate loan deal back? I don’t see that being in the interests of the club to do that.
‘We have not spoken about it and it is not something we are working on.’
