Tottenham will face competition from Bayern Munich for Bordeaux forward Malcom in the summer
Spurs as well as north London rivals Arsenal were both linked with the young Brazilian in January, but Bordeaux were able to hang onto him and the Gunners snapped up Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang .
And despite Tottenham signing Lucas Moura, it is thought they are still keeping tabs on Malcom. However, according to the Sun on Sunday , German champions Bayern will rival them for his signature considering Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery are both 34.

“He is a special player who can win matches on his own,” Bordeaux manager Gus Poyet said. “He is often double-marked because his talent is that special. In January we were nervous because we almost lost him to the Premier League . We must prepare for this because sooner or later he will leave.”
That is likely to be when the summer window opens, with Malcom recently admitting he will leaving the French club when the window opens.
"Yes, there was a promise that I will be negotiating in June," he said Malcom.
"I will choose the team, and Bordeaux will let me go. I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges. But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot.
"I gave my word to Bordeaux that I will continue [with the club] to be able to have more time to choose my future club.
"These next three or four months will make a big difference."
