Official: Malcom to join Roma

Bordeaux have confirmed that Brazilian forward Malcom is set to join Roma.

The announcement comes after Gianluca Di Marzio claimed earlier in the day that Malcom had agreed a five-year contract with Roma, in a deal that could set the Giallorossi back €40m.

“Bordeaux announce they have reached an agreement with Roma for the transfer of Malcom, subject to the signing of administrative documents,” the French club tweeted.

The 21-year-old, who primarily plays as a left-footed right winger, scored 20 goals in 84 appearances for Les Girondins and has represented Brazil at Under-20 and U21 levels.
