Wenger distances Arsenal from Malcom move

Arsene Wenger has sought to distance Arsenal from reports suggesting that a £40 million move for Bordeaux forward Malcom is imminent.

Gunners are preparing to step up their efforts to land the talented 20-year-old as they ready themselves for life without Alexis Sanchez. With the Chile international on the brink of departing Emirates Stadium for Manchester – with City and United both keen – Arsenal is eager to bring in a long-term replacement. Malcom has been mooted as a possible contender to fill that role, but Wenger insists no move has been made for the highly-rated Brazilian. 

-He is a good player but nothing is happening. We are not on that case at the moment, the Frenchman told a news conference on Friday.

Malcom has also been linked with Arsenal’s arch-rivals Tottenham, while United are said to be closely monitoring a developing situation.
