Tottenham Hotspur are still licking their wounds after being beaten narrowly 1-0 by Manchester United on Sunday, and in the aftermath of that game it became apparent that they’re thin on the ground with injuries. With that in mind, the Lilywhites love these rumours from The Daily Star linking them with a loan move for Barcelona’s Malcom.
[@DailyStar_Sport] now understand Tottenham Hotspur are considering a loan bid for Barcelona winger Malcom in an attempt to ease their attacking concerns.

The Brazilian winger has flopped since his he made a summer move from Bordeaux to Barcelona and has been used sparingly by Ernesto Valverde at the Nou Camp. However, after signing for a large transfer fee it’s hard to see the La Liga outfit letting him go just six months later for a cut-price fee, and that’s why a loan move for the youngster would prove to be a bit more realistic.
Tottenham were one of the clubs linked with the 21-year-old over the summer and it would be no surprise if they were to go back in for the winger. His goals and assists were crucial to Bordeaux last season as the Ligue 1 club secured Europa League football and this season could see him help Spurs qualify for the Champions League if he did come and add goals and assists to an injury-stricken Spurs.

Sod ‘depending on the severity of Kane’s injury’, if it’s a viable move then we should go for it. The Fulham match is going to be very interesting this weekend.

More importantly will he consider us?It's not like we have loads of options available. Paying the price for not having proper Kane back up and not giving Llorente alot of game time despite the fact he often makes an impact in the 10 mins he's given each game

The Lilywhites would love to bring in Malcom this January, and whilst it’s unlikely, it would be a great move.
