Tottenham Hotspur reportedly decide to end their interest in signing Bordeaux winger Malcom during the January transfer window.
Tottenham Hotspur have reportedly decided to drop out of the race to sign Bordeaux winger Malcom during the January transfer window.
After contributing seven goals and four assists in Ligue 1 this season, a number of Premier League sides have been linked with making a move for the young Brazilian.
Arsenal are said to be the favourites to secure a deal for the attacker, and according to the Daily Mail, their efforts have been boosted by the decision of their North London rivals.
Spurs allegedly saw a bid of £31m rejected earlier this month, but Mauricio Pochettino is not interested in paying the 20-year-old's asking price of £45m midway through the campaign.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has played down reports linking the Gunners with the player, despite potentially needing a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.
Manchester United - who are also said to be keen on Malcom - have reportedly agreed financial terms with Sanchez ahead of a January move to Old Trafford.
