Bordeaux whizkid Malcom is reportedly taking English lessons amid rising interest from multiple Premier League clubs.
The 20-year-old is currently being eyed by the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur. And while the London clubs are closely monitoring his situation, their rivals from across the country, Man Utd, are already plotting a move for the youngster.
The Red Devils had reportedly inquired about the Brazilian starlet last month in order to strengthen their attacking line-up after failing to land a top quality winger in the 2017 summer transfer window.

United boss, Jose Mourinho, is an established admirer of the Bordeaux winger, and regards him as ‘the best young player in Europe’.
The Special One is reportedly ready to shell out £40 million to acquire the wide-man’s services this January. However, his plan does include loaning him back to Bordeaux after the transfer.
Regardless, Malcom is already preparing for life in England, as he recently posted an Instagram photo from one of his study sessions featuring a written test and some flashcards that read “I’m”, “Good Morning” and “Week,” along with the caption “Come On”.
The former Corinthian starlet has scored seven goals and bagged four assists in 18 Ligue 1 appearances this season, and has represented Brazil at Under-20 and Under-23 levels.
Along with the English powerhouses, Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich have also expressed an interest in bringing the young lad to Allianz Arena. But for now, a move to the Premier League seems the likelist thanks to his Instagram post.
