Arsenal could reignite their interest in signing Malcom from Bordeaux in the summer transfer window, according to reports in the British media.

The Evening Standard is reporting that the Gunners could make a fresh move to try and sign the attacker at the end of the season after they were linked with a move for the 20-year-old in the January window.

The same report says that Arsenal could be set to “revisit” the possibility of signing Malcom from the French side in the summer transfer window.

A switch failed to materialise for the young Brazilian as Arsenal instead opted to bring in Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Malcom was linked with a move to the Premier League at the start of the January transfer window, but that speculation died down as the transfer deadline approached.

The attacker has scored eight goals and made five assists in 22 Ligue 1 appearances for Bordeaux so far this season.

Arsenal are looking to try and break back into the top four this season after they finished fifth last term and had to settle for a place in the Europa League.

The north London side have not won the Premier League title since their famous unbeaten triumph in the 2003-04 campaign.
