#2 Everton and Guangzhou Evergrande interested in Malcom

Malcom hasn't featured heavily since signing in the summer

A controversial signing that happened in last summer's transfer window was Barcelona's purchase of Brazilian winger Malcom, from Bordeaux. He was set to sign with Italian club Roma, but pulled out of a deal in the last minute, to sign for Barca.

But it hasn't quite worked out for the 21-year-old attacker, as he has featured in just 9 games in all competitions for the club, scoring two goals.

Now, reports suggest that several clubs are interested in his signature, two of which are Premier League side Everton, and Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande. Marca claim that Everton are interested in the Brazilian's signature, and that they were willing to pay €35 million in the summer before his move to Barca. Malcom has reportedly told the club that he is willing to stay and fight it out for a place in the team.

Everton signed three Barcelona players in the summer transfer window - Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne, while Andre Gomes was signed on loan.

Meanwhile, AS (via Bruno Andrade) have reported that Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande have placed a €50m bid for the young attacker.
