The Daily Mail is reporting that the Reds are keen on making a move to land the 21-year-old Brazilian from Bordeaux as Jurgen Klopp looks to bolster his squad ahead of next season.

The same report says that Manchester United have also held preliminary talks about a move for the winger, while Tottenham and Arsenal have also been linked with the player.

According to the same story, Liverpool FC have placed Malcom on a transfer shortlist which also includes Bayer Leverkusen’s Leon Bailey and Christian Pulisic of Borussia Dortmund.

The article also claims that Malcom is valued at around £40m by the Ligue 1 side ahead of the summer transfer window.

The winger has been in good form for Bordeaux this season, scoring 10 goals and making six assists in 33 Ligue 1 games for the French side.
