Lazio ask Barca for Malcom

Malcom famously failed to turn up for Roma, but could be coming to the Olimpico for Lazio on loan from Barcelona, claim Sport.

The winger had agreed terms with the Giallorossi over the summer and was expected at the airport with medical booked when he suddenly switched flights.

He received a call from Barcelona and made the move there from Bordeaux for €41m instead.

After just nine competitive appearances for the Blaugrana, it’s now reported Malcom could be moving to Rome after all, but for their city rivals Lazio.

Spanish newspaper Sport maintains Lazio director Igli Tare and President Claudio Lotito have contacted Barcelona to ask for Malcom on loan.

This would allow the Brazilian to continue his development and fight for a top four Serie A finish.

Malcom turns 22 next month and is currently struggling with an ankle injury.
