- Malcom has been a late rush target for a possible move to Premier League side Arsenal
- The Brazilian has been struggling for form since his arrival from Bordeaux last summer
- Arsenal proposed a loan deal for the 21-year-old during negotiations for Denis Suarez
Malcom has emerged as a transfer target for Arsenal as the Premier League side are hoping to snap the Brazilian on deadline day.
The north London club proposed for a loan deal for the misfit Barcelona striker during negotiations for midfielder Denis Suarez.
The 21-year-old has been unable to nail a starting shirt in Ernesto Valverde's side this season but the club's hierarchy still rate him highly and are not willing to sell him.
And Barca could listen to a loan offer from the Gunners as the Spanish club believe the former Bordeaux star will remain fit and keep his value up in the summer.
But the Spanish champions are indecisive about Malcom's long-term future and could demand £50million for the attacker, a fee Arsenal would consider paying.

Serie A giants AC Milan have also been keen on loan move for the Brazilian youngster - only if Barca would consider or accept a loan deal to a lesser Spanish rival.
However a move to the Emirates with regular playing time could also be of advantage to Barca and the player with Unai Emery’s Arsenal crossing their fingers for the green light.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Premier League campaigners, Arsenal, have been dealt a massive blow in their pursuit to sign Barcelona star, Denis Suarez, during the January window transfer.
The London club was keen to land the services of the midfielder who is not finding it rosy with the Catalans.
