With Arsenal prepared to sell Alexis Sanchez this month, the club have identified Malcom as the Chilean’s replacement. But just who is Malcom?

The 20 year-old currently of Bordeaux has emerged as one of the brightest forwards in Europe this season.

Malcom began his football career as a product of Brazilian outfit Corinthians youth setup before graduating to the first-team in 2014.

He appeared a total of 73 games for the club scoring 10 goals, but was plucked by Bordeaux at the beginning of 2016.

Malcom celebrates scoring for Bordeaux.

The Brazilian’s first full season in Ligue 1 saw him emerge as a fan favourite at the club. The tricky winger found the net seven times as he helped Bordeaux to claim 6th in the league.

Malcom possesses a wicked shot from distance, usually from cutting inside on his preferred left foot, whilst he is also more than apt in crossing the ball.

This season the diminutive talent has already tallied seven goals and four assists in France.

Gooners, could he be Arsenal next big thing? Let us know in the comments…
