Liverpool are front runners for Barca forward Malcom

Liverpool are keen to strike a deal with Barcelona for out-of-favour forward Malcom.

The 21-year-old has failed to adapt at Camp Nou since joining in a £36.5m deal last summer, starting just once in La Liga all term and being used 12 times in all competitions.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are among the Premier League clubs rumoured to have already contacted Barca to discuss a deal for Malcom, but Le 10 Sport claims that Liverpool have emerged as the frontrunners to sign him.

Barcelona reportedly want to keep the Brazilian for at least another season, though he may force a way out of Catalonia if his first-team prospects do not improve in the coming months.

Malcom starred for Bordeaux to earn a move to Barca, where he has netted three times in total, including in the 1-1 Copa del Rey draw with Real Madrid earlier this month.
