RMC in France and Sport in Spain claim that Marco Silva has made the former Bordeaux winger his next top priority in the current transfer window as he seeks to make attacking reinforcements to his squad.
Malcom was linked with a move to Goodison Park during the January transfer window but nothing came of the speculation.
Talk of him making a switch to the Premier League has resurfaced in recent weeks, with Arsenal among his rumoured suitors.
According to a Brazilian journalist, Malcom's agent has travelled to England to hold talks with two un-named clubs.

Looked decent in the French league, perhaps a loan with option to buy in either January '20 or Summer '20 makes sense given the risk of Malcolm not played in the Prem.

Anyhow we all know that Everton's strike force is weak apart from Richarleson who can only benefit from some class assistance so let's see how good this rumor is.
I still see Welbeck being worth a shot now he has been released but has some club already got dibs or is Silva happy with DCL, Tosun and Walcott.

Surely there has to be a Brazilian steak house setting up in town soon.

I really like Malcom. He's brilliant ball carrier, can shoot well from range and has genuine vision. I think he'd be a better option than Neres potentially and has more experience in better leagues despite his struggles at Barca (he still scored four goals and got 2 assists in 600 minutes).
For him he gets to come to a club where he would be guaranteed game time with two Brazilian team-mates and a manager who speaks Portuguese. He gets to get his career back on track in the most watched league in the world.
This makes alot of sense all round to me. As I said on the Lookman thread if we could sell Lookman for £22m and buy Malcom for £32m I think that would represent extremely good business.
Fingers crossed there is some truth in this one.

We were all over Malcolm last season and gutted when we missed out, so cannot for the life of me see what the problem is bringing the guy in this season.
As others have said though, centre forward is a must.

Thank god we are back on to saner territory after the Costa nonsense. Malcom fits the profile more and we were very interested in him last summer before he went to Barca. So there may be some mileage in it especially as we seem to be twinned with Barcelona these days.

Some how I think there will be an extension to the players car park at FF, as the surplus of players we could possibly start with next season, due to the likelihood of them being sold. A whole squad that we will struggle to sell and will make big losses on.
But hope eternal.

You're kidding aren't you Les?
This is EFC we're talking about here, I doubt they know the transfer window has begun, 5 mins to midnight on deadline day they'll have a look around at all the odds and sods that haven't been sold and buy a few.

Bernard and Malcolm are two completely different animals, Clive, not 'similar' in build or play at all.
28 Posted 08/07/2019 at 20:15:47
Fill the obvious first team holes first.. striker, centre half, water carrier (If Gueye goes).
29 Posted 08/07/2019 at 21:42:14
They have took Niasse's car parking space off him along with his locker so he leaves his Escort van with his clobber in it outside FF

However, some of the most successful managers have been ones that have been able to take a player and seamlessly change his game from one position to another.
In so doing those managers seem to create teams that are far greater than the sum of their parts.
Perhaps we have such a one in Silva (or in Silva and Brands combined), and maybe not.
But it could be that our management team are picking players that they intend to use in slightly different positions to those in which they have normally played, because they can see some potential there that the rest of us have not.
It may also be for the same type of reason that Lookman is not getting game time in the team.
32 Posted 08/07/2019 at 23:21:19
Shouldn't we pepare the bid before we launch it?

Dennis, I don't follow.
38 Posted 09/07/2019 at 08:28:57
If the lad fancies it and he will have a couple of fellow Brazilians touting from the club ! then he will be an Everton player soon.

"No, the exam, silly!"
"Oh, that smells nice, mum."

Neres and Malcom are both left footed whereas Richie is right footed. Think we may well add another winger this summer.
48 Posted 09/07/2019 at 16:47:38
Remember bungling Bill is still there in the background, and the fair play rules may have changed regarding players contracts, but I believe the rules of how much a club or wealthy owner is allowed to contribute is still in effect
49 Posted 09/07/2019 at 21:16:39
Would wonder where that would leave Gylfy though or will one of Bernard/Richarlison /Malcom need to be benched each game. Cant see at least two of the three being happy with that.
Players improving the squad is always good but Id like to see some action on the striker front as well as right back. Theres still some hope Zouma may yet arrive. Amazed even the rumours arent linking us with any strikers at all...
