Transfer rumour: Liverpool join race for in-demand Bordeaux winger Malcom

Ernesto Valverde calls for Barcelona to maintain focus as history beckons

Ernesto Valverde calls for Barcelona to maintain focus as history beckons

Liverpool are reportedly eyeing a transfer for Brazilian forward Malcom from Bordeaux.

It has also been claimed Manchester United held talks with Bordeaux in January over a possible deal, but their interest never came to fruition.

Liverpool have joined the race to sign Bordeaux winger Malcom with Jurgen Klopp looking to strengthen his attacking options. They are on course for a top-four league finish and are in the final of the Champions League, where they face Real Madrid in Kiev later in the month.

But Klopp knows further spending is necessary to keep up with Liverpool's rivals and he has identified Malcom as a top target, according to the Daily Mail.

Malcom is thought to be one of the forward players Liverpool are tracking ahead of the transfer window, with Borussia Dortmund's 19-year-old U.S. star Christian Pulisic and Bayer Leverkusen's 20-year-old Leon Bailey also on the Reds' shortlist.

Malcom has scored 10 goals in 30 league starts this season, and is expected to cost around £40million this summer.

"It is the reason we bought this player in the first place, to eventually sell him in between seasons".

Liverpool have also been heavily linked with a move for Olympique Lyon Nabil Fekir recently as well, while the name of Barcelona's young forward Ousmane Dembele has also been doing the rounds of late. 'Nabil in Liverpool, that's unsuitable, ' he mentioned. I hear there are arrangements, stuff like that... It's not true. Otherwise Nabil would have told me right away, we are very close'.
