Everton in advanced talks to sign Malcom

Everton have largely been quiet during the transfer window this summer in terms of bodies coming into the club, although they have been linked with a number of players.

Marco Silva was appointed as the new Toffees manager to replace Sam Allardyce after a rather poor Premier League season that saw them fighting for survival for the majority of it.

The Goodison Park outfit had been expecting to push for a place within European competition, having spent almost £200million, however, this summer looks as though it will be far less expensive.

Silva will be keen to bring in a number of recruits in certain areas to help improve the side and according to reports, he could be prepared to bring in one attacker that has been linked with a number of sides recently.

According to Kaveh Solhekol, Everton are thought to be in advanced talks with Bordeaux for winger Malcom about a possible deal.

The Sky Sports journalist states that the Brazilian is thought to be the subject of a deal worth around £30m with possible add-ons still being discussed.

The Verdict:

The 21-year-old has been tracked by a number of Europe’s biggest clubs over the past couple of transfer windows and should Everton land him it would be considered a major coup.

The winger has been electrifying for the French side and it is thought that it is only a moment of time before he makes his debut for his country’s senior side.

With a fee of around £30m being discussed, and dependent of the bonuses being added, it would appear that Everton could be about to land one of the bargains of the summer.
