Bayern Munich interested in Bordeaux star Malcom

Malcom has emerged as a surprise target for Bayern Munich in the winter transfer window.

Bayern Munich are interested in Bordeaux forward Malcom, according to the football transfer rumours in French media.

The Brazil international was signed by Bordeaux in January 2016 from Corinthians for a fee of 5 million euros. The 20-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Since his arrival from Corinthians, Malcom has scored 18 goals and provided 13 assists in 76 games for Bordeaux, including seven goals and five assists in 18 games in all competitions this season.

The 20-year-old is considered to be one of the best young forwards in Brazil.

Malcom has represented Brazil at Under-20 and Under-23 level, winning 15 caps and scoring two goals.

The 20-year-old is high in demand this winter, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Bordeaux this term.

Jupp Heynckes wants to sign a new forward this winter and Malcom is one of the names at the top of his wishlist.

The Bayern Munich manager has been impressed by his performances this season and could make a move in the coming transfer window.

Bayern Munich will be desperate to make an impact in winter transfer window.

The 20-year-old is certainly a player that would strengthen the current Bayern Munich squad and would be a good buy.

According to the report, Bayern Munich recently sent scouts to France to watch 20-year-old Malcom in action. The Brazil international is a pacy, left-footed forward who is more comfortable playing on the right flank. His tricky dribbling, fantastic shot and pace make him a nightmare for any left-back to defend.

Signing the 20-year-old in January would be a masterstroke from Jupp Heynckes.
