It’s believed that Malcom has accepted a move to Roma, so now they must work out a deal with Bordeaux.
The Brazilian winger agreed a deal with Inter some time ago, but the Nerazzurri’s offer of an expensive loan with an option to buy didn’t convince his club.
Everton were then believed to be close to signing him, but Alisson’s €72.5m move to Liverpool changed everything.
With that money in hand, the Giallorossi launched a move for Malcom, meeting with his entourage last night.
Now calciomercato.com is reporting that was a fruitful summit, and the 21-year-old is open to moving to the Stadio Olimpico.
Bordeaux are asking for around €40m to sell their star man, but that fee can be negotiated.
The capital club could look to do a loan with obligation to buy, thereby spreading the cost, and include performance-related bonuses to lower the outright transfer fee.
