Tottenham Hotspur are set to make a stunning swoop for Bordeaux winger Malcom, according to a reliable journalist.
Darren Lewis, sports writer for the Daily Mirror made the stunning revelation on his official Twitter feed and stated that Spurs were in discussions with the Brazilian with a view to bringing him to north London in the summer.
Spurs are in the early stages of talks over a deal for Malcom. He would, in theory be one for the summer if they can agree a deal with Bordeaux now. More @MirrorFootball

Spurs are in need of options going forward with the goalscoring burden resting predominantly on the shoulders of Harry Kane.
There had been concerns over the club’s lack of activity on the transfer front but should Tottenham sign the young Brazilian it will go some of the way to dampen any worries.
Malcom has seven goals and five assists from 20 appearances for Bordeaux in the league and is seen as one of the hottest attackers in Europe right now.
Football Insider verdict:
This would be stunning news for Tottenham if they can get one over their fierce rivals, Arsenal, who reportedly wanted the striker. However, it must not be forgotten that Malcom is still very much an unknown quantity. This is the Brazilian’s first season in Ligue 1 and at just 20-years-old he is a raw talent. He certainly has bags of potential though, with speed and strength to boot, but his signing would likely be one for the future. The striker has notched up seven goals in 21 games for the French side which is pretty good going considering Bordeaux are lingering just above the drop.
