Speaking to L’Équipe, Bordeaux President Stéphane Martin claimed that there have been no discussions with Arsenal over a possible transfer of Malcom.
“Things are clear with his agents. We did not sign him to an extension and tie him to something, to let him go this winter. We have never had a discussion with Arsenal. From our point of view, it is nothing but hot air. They can always try, but they will struggle to take him from us.”
