Transfer: Barcelona slaps £55 million price tag on PSG and Arsenal target

Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, and Everton have all been put on red alert with Barcelona slapping a £55-million price tag on Malcom. The 22-year-old Brazilian is among a host of players expected to depart the Blaugrana this summer.

Malcom completed a switch from Bordeaux to Camp Nou last summer but has failed to land a regular place in Ernesto Valverde's side since his £37 million arrival. In his 24 appearances across all competitions, the winger managed just a meagre return of four goals.

With Antoine Griezmann arriving and Barcelona already having the likes of Ousmane Dembele and Philippe Coutinho, the former Ligue 1 star has somewhat become surplus to requirement. According to Marca, the players representatives have already met with the Catalan club regarding his future.

At the moment, Malcom is keen on knowing the kind of clubs that are interested in signing him and could potentially seal a move elsewhere if a team ups its pursuit with a substantial offer. Although it cost Barcelona £37 million to secure his service from Bordeaux, the Blaugrana seeks to make a hefty profit when parting ways with the Brazilian prodigy, hence the £55 million price tag.

Everton, PSG and Arsenal are reportedly monitoring the winger's situation. However, recent claims suggest that the Gunners are only interested in sealing a loan deal for the Brazilian considering their limited budget.
