    "I published last week that Arsenal entered the fray by former Corinthians Malcolm. Today I hear that the talks are progressing well"

    Might as well have a thread, he'll be joining a PL rival if not us anyway.

    Wenger will probably play him in the middle.

    Been checking his twitter. Works for Goal but reports about Brazilian stuff as well, some recent stuff about Flamengo. Said he's heard it's been progressing well, alright.

    Has loads of tweets about Coutinho's agent.

    Will try and dig to see if he got anything right

    Spurs had a bid rejected for 90% of his rights, surprised Wenger would get involved with a deal like this.

    Saw his youtube comp. His goals look like goals a player score when on purple patch. Doesn't seems technical enough in those comps I've seen.

    Is there anything more to him than the videos show?

    Surprised we're in for Malcom. I like him and he's got a great shot on him but seems a bit limited.

    Would take Malcolm and Pavon to replace Theo and Alexis would very good start to rebuild and both likely could cost us 50-60M.

    Has anyone seen his stats? They're insane for a guy his age.

    I agree. Posting so others can see them as well.

    That said, he looks good in the ever-bias-proof clip videos and is still young.

    He's getting quite a few assists. Around 0.6 NPG+A per 90 does bode well.

    Could be a high ceiling there, but the constant longshots will get tired after a while. He won't score all of them.

    We'll drill them out of him soon enough.

    Hardly has to be exceptional right now to have an impact outwide. No one in the club stepping up.

    That was Statsbomb's analysis too. In the comps we see the great long shots he scores, but we don't see all the ones he misses. He needs to improve his decision making in that regard.

    There's no doubt he's raw, but there's also no doubt he's talented. Depending on the price, he's worth the risk I'd say, but only if another attacker comes too. Malcom and Pavon would be an exciting duo on the flanks.

    Pavon looks a lot more impressive

    Malcolm did an Instagram story showing he's learning English...
