“I already said that I would have liked to leave this winter to meet new challenges,” Malcom said. 

“But I must also remember that Bordeaux helped me a lot,” said the 20-year-old, who joined Bordeaux in 2016 from Brazilian side Corinthians.

“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. Yes, Bordeaux promised me that I will have a good release in June.

“I will choose my next club and Bordeaux will let me go.”

Malcom has scored eight goals and added six assists in Ligue 1 play this season. 

Arsenal made enquiries for the winger in January but pulled out of a deal after being unwilling to pay the French club’s £44 million asking price.
