Arsenal receive boost in Malcom chase as 'Tottenham drop interest in Â£45m Bordeaux winger'
Arsenal have reportedly received a boost in their pursuit of Bordeaux winger Malcom.
The Gunners have earmarked the Brazilian as a replacement for wantaway Alexis Sanchez who looks set to leave the Emirates this month.
Bordeaux have quoted a fee of around Â£45million for the 20-year-old, but according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal's chances of landing him have been boosted after their local rivals Tottenham dropped out of the chase for the playmaker.
Spurs are said to be focusing their January spending plans in other areas, but Manchester United have previously shown an interest in Malcom.
