Arsène Wenger is believed to be scouting a replacement for Alexis Sánchez this January, with Manchester United battling Manchester City for the 29-year-old Chilean.

A Facebook post by Malcom’s agent, Leonardo Cornacini, has further increased speculation that the Brazilian is heading to the Emirates. Cornacini posted a picture of himself with the caption: “This is @elenko_sports… invading the land of Royal Majesty #PremierLeague.”

This comes days after the Bordeaux winger revealed on his Instagram page that he’s learning English. Recent reports also say that the 20-year-old’s mother has confirmed that he is moving to England.

The Brazilian has had an impressive start to the season in France, scoring seven goals and six assists in 19 appearances for Bordeaux. Club president Stephane Martin insisted that the club will keep hold of the 20-year-old until the summer, but if reports are to be believed, the youngster could be on the move this January.

When asked about Malcom ahead of Arsenal’s clash with Bournemouth, Wenger replied: “He’s a good player. But at the moment, there as well nothing is happening.”
