Winger In New Arsenal Link
Arsenal are interested in a loan move for Barcelona winger Malcom. The 21-year-old Brazilian moved to the Nou Camp from French side Bordeaux in the summer after the La Liga giants hijacked his move to Roma at the eleventh hour.
But he has found opportunities hard to come by at his new club. He has played just 25 minutes of football spread over two substitute appearances in La Liga and is being tipped to leave the Nou Camp for the second half of the season.
Arsenal were linked with Malcom when he was with Bordeaux. But work permit problems are believed to have scuppered the chances of any bid. The winger has yet to make his senior international debut and that would make the chances of a move to any English club problematic.
It’s all speculation at the moment. Barcelona have yet to make a final decision over whether the Brazilian will be farmed out at all next summer.
Gunners In Race For Milenkovic
Arsenal are one of a number of Premier League clubs taking an interest in Fiorentina defender Nikola Milenkovic.
The 21-year-old has been monitored by the Gunners but he is also a target for Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea as well as Serie A giants Juventus. Football Gossip reported last week that United have been linked with a bid worth €60million (£53million) for Milenkovic.
The Serbia international is only his second season at Fiorentina. He arrived from Partizan Belgrade in the summer of 2017. He made 14 starts and two appearances off the bench in Serie A during his first season at the club. He has followed that up by playing every minute of their eight league games so far this campaign.
Gunners In Pole Position Over Crowe
Arsenal are also interested in Ipswich Town right-back Dylan Crowe. The 17-year-old was part of the England side that got to the semi-finals of the Uefa Under-17 Championships this summer. He has yet to make his first-team debut for the Tractor Boys.
Manchester United, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund are also being linked but the Gunners are in pole position.
