This summer has been one that has seen Tottenham linked with the signing of every man and his dog. The Lillywhites are yet to actually sign a player this summer and now that Malcom is nearing a move to one of Barcelona or Roma the fans can tick another name off of their list.
Another one bites the dust… https://t.co/8HDNsRsQzE

Spurs were very heavily linked with signing the Brazilian winger back in January but Mauricio Pochettino eventually moved to sign a different Brazilian winger from France when the club announced the signing of Lucas Moura from PSG. It seems that the club don’t need to sign another winger and their interest in Lamcom has cooled greatly over the last few months, leading the likes of Roma, Everton and Barcelona to lead them in the race for Malcom.
It looks like Pochettino has lost interest completely in the 22-year-old and with Spurs chasing up other targets the fans will be hoping they’re not made to regret the fact that they’ve missed out on the Brazilian. The window still has just over two weeks left to run and with the club yet to make a signing it could be a nervy few weeks for the fans, who expected big things from their club coming into this season.
You can see what the Spurs fans make of Malcom here:
Not overly fussed with this one even though we need some players

We haven’t been after him since signing Lucas Moura. Nothing to see here.

Spurs don't need another winger unless one leaves. That's a fact.

Didn’t want him anyway

Levy counting the pennies cost us again. Just hoping this means we’re going for Martial

Clearly he wasn’t a target this summer so how have we missed out

I think this one bit the dust when we signed Lucas.

As you can see, a lot of the fans aren’t bothered to have missed out on Malcom and will be more optimistic when other transfers present themselves.
