Tottenham are close to signing Bordeaux forward Malcom on a buy-to-loan deal, according to Football Insider.

The football news site claim that the north Londoners are “confident” of securing the Brazilian, 20, before the 31 January transfer cut-off.

Football Insider report that Spurs are working hard on a deal to sign Malcom permanently and immediately loan him back to the French club for the remainder of the season.

It is said that talks have taken place over the weekend to tie up the transfer and that manager Mauricio Pochettino is the driving force behind signing a player he believes can be a “valuable addition” to his team.

Malcom has produced a series of scintillating displays for the Ligue 1 strugglers this season, with seven goals and six assists in his 22 appearances across all competitions.
