Roma are reportedly on the verge of a deal for Malcom, with only discussions over the timing of payments to be resolved with Bordeaux.
The Giallorossi are looking to use some of the world record transfer fee they received for Alisson to beat Inter and Everton to the winger.
According to this morning’s Gazzetta Sportiva, an agreement has been reached for €35m plus €2.5m in bonuses.
Malcom is ready to sign a five year contract worth €2.5m per season, and all that remains to be worked out is the structure of the deal.
The Lupi are looking to spread the payments over time, while Bordeaux would prefer to have as much as possible up front.
