Bordeaux winger Malcolm is set for a Premier League move this summer according to reports, a host of clubs are after his signature including Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal & Chelsea all interested.
Bordeaux’s manager Gus Poyet has admitted he believes his star player will be on the way out this summer.
“He’s a special player who can win matches on his own. He is often double-marked because his talent is that special,” said Poyet.
“In January we were nervous because we almost lost him to the Premier League. We must prepare for this because sooner or later he will leave.”
This came after an earlier statement from the player himself.
“I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go. I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot,” he said.
“I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club. These next three or four months will make a big difference.
