Spurs fans may already be crying out for the summer transfer window after their recent collapse in the Premier League, but with Daniel Levy calling the shots there’s no guarantee they’ll spend.
The North London club remain in a promising position in the race for a top four spot but things would be a whole lot better right now if Mauricio Pochettino’s side hadn’t suffered a dip in form prior to the international break.
Of course, one area that requires improving in the summer transfer window is out wide as the likes of Erik Lamela and Son Heung-min are the only two natural wingers in the side.
Interestingly, it appears as if the Lilywhites already have their eyes on a possible summer swoop, as according to Marca (via Sport Witness), Barcelona have slapped a €70 million (£60 million) asking price on Malcom and the article also references Spurs’ interest in the Brazilian.
It’s safe to say that the Brazilian, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), isn’t even worth half the reported £60 million fee as he’s completely flopped since moving to Spain, having made just 15 appearances in all competitions for Barcelona this season.
Spurs fans will agree that Lamela has been hit-and-miss this season and he’s had his fair share of critics at times, but even the Argentine is better than Malcom. He’s managed to feature in 31 games in all competitions, producing six goals and three assists, so it’s safe to say that Spurs should drop their reported interest in Malcom immediately.
Tottenham Hotspur fans, surely £60 million for the Brazilian must be some kind of joke? Join the discussion by commenting down below!Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
