Tottenham are willing to drop their interest in Malcolm amid interest from Arsenal.
The Times report that Bordeaux want around £45m for the 20-year-old and Spurs are unwilling to pay that, whereas the Gunners are eyeing him to be their replacement for the outgoing Alexis Sanchez.


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has labelled Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez a “good investment”, sparking suggestions that the Blues could also be in the queue for the Chilean, along with Manchester United and Manchester City.
He said: “I think it is a good investment. We are talking about a top player and you can buy him for a price not so high. The amount is around £20 million. Maybe a normal price for Alexis Sánchez is €80-90m. This is my opinion.”
