  • Roma to sign Brazilian winger Malcom from Bordeaux

Roma have rekindled their interest in Chelsea linked winger Leon Bailey after losing out on Malcom to Barcelona this summer.

Roma had announced on Monday that they had reached an agreement with Bordeaux to sign the 21-year-old.

Barcelona then scuppered the deal, flew the Bordeaux winger to Barcelona today and announced that they had in fact agreed a €41m deal for the player, subject to a medical that will take place tomorrow, on Wednesday 25th July.

Some media outlets are reporting that the clubs are preparing the documents and the player could be presented as a Barcelona man in the next few hours before setting off immediately to join his new teammates in the United States. The operation will cost 41 million euros and 1 million in variables.

But Malcom became their primary target after a campaign during which he scored 12 goals and laid on eight assists in all competitions.

And a deal with the Spanish champions has now been agreed, with Malcom set to sign a five-year contract with Ernesto Valverde's side.

"He stands out due to his electrifying pace and his technique with the ball at his feet", the club added.

Barcelona praised him as a "daring, pacey forward with an ability to shoot from distance" who has "a great future ahead of him".

He is Barca's second Brazilian summer signing - after £35.5m Gremio midfielder Arthur, 21.
