Bordeaux attacker Malcom will reportedly undergo a medical with Roma on Tuesday.
Roma remain locked in talks with Bordeaux over a fee for Malcom, but Premium Sport’s Andersinho Marques claims the Giallorossi are nonetheless expecting the 21-year-old to arrive early next week.
The latest from Eurosport suggests an agreement is close, with the Lupi offering ‘€36-37m including bonuses’, although Bordeaux continue to hold out for €40m.
The forward, who has also been linked with Inter and Everton, would have already accepted Roma’s proposal of a five-year contract worth €2.5m a season.
