Wenger: Sanchez is not going to be bought till he's changed

  • GETTYMalcom is on Manchester United's radar

United are lining up the Bordeaux star, 20, to strengthen their options out wide.

Bordeaux want around £45million for the 20-year-old in January and Tottenham have opted to prioritise other targets.

It's beginning to look likely that Malcom will either join Arsenal or Tottenham in the current transfer window. "Everybody wants to play".

Arsene Wenger was open to raiding a London rival for the Brazil international, but his search for a centre-half will now shift elsewhere. Malcom has only played for two clubs and the forward has not been capped, yet his pace and strength on the ball are astonishing for someone so young, and with Pochettino's track record of nourishing young talent - this could have been a match made in heaven.

But I don't want to give news that I cannot confirm. He did not start Wednesday's game against Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.

"What is clear at the moment is that Malcom is probably going to be on the move sometime in the next six months". But Sanchez wants to win.

It's worth noting that Arsenal seem to be above Tottenham on Malcom's list of preferences.

Manchester United have also recently emerged as a contender to offer Premier League leaders City stiff competition for Sanchez's signature, but Wenger added there's no sign of a bidding war: "Honestly I can't tell you much more at the moment about this situation, because nothing is really concrete at the moment".

Bordeaux winger, Malcom would reportedly prefer to join Arsenal over Spurs after being strongly linked with a move to North London (via Sport Witness).
