With the transfer window now here, Everton could look to make some new signings as they aim to clinch that spot just behind the Premier League top six come May.
And one name the Toffees are currently being linked with is Barcelona’s Malcom. According to Marca, the 21-year-old could leave the Camp Nou having barely featured for Ernesto Valverde’s side this season following his move from Bordeaux last summer.
There is also said to be interest from China in £36m-rated (Transfermarkt) Malcom, but Everton would be wise to fight off any other outfit for the Brazilian’s services should a Barcelona exit be on the cards.
With his left foot and dribbling ability, he would be a huge upgrade on the underperforming Theo Walcott, though signing a centre-forward should probably be the first priority for the Merseyside club this month.
You can have a look at what Everton supporters are saying on the Malcom rumours below…

We wanted him in the summer before he went there. Get him and a striker plus a right back and we are looking much stronger. Our problem is no strength in depth it’s quite simple and this is a project not a quick fix!!

If we got Gomes on a perm and was then able to loan malcom that would be a madness
