Liverpool FC are set to meet with Malcom’s agent to discuss a summer switch from Bordeaux, according to a report.

Talksport, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Bordeaux’s agent is jetting into England to hold talks with both Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur.

The same article states that Liverpool FC view the 21-year-old as a potential option to improve their attacking options ahead of the new Premier League season.

According to the story, the Reds are viewed as one of the favourites to sign Malcom as Liverpool FC look to quickly conclude their summer transfer business.

The report goes on to reveal that Premier League side Arsenal and Serie A giants Inter Milan are also interested in the Brazilian forward.

Malcom scored 12 times and made seven assists in 37 games in Ligue last season to underline his rising status in French football.

Liverpool FC have also been linked with a swoop to sign Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir in the current transfer window but have been unable to agree a fee with the Ligue 1 club.

The Reds signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £40m deal from AS Monaco earlier this month to conclude their first summer signing.
