FC Barcelona have confirmed the arrival of Brazilian winger Malcom

Barcelona have reached a deal to sign Bordeaux winger Malcom for £36.5m - a day after Roma announced they were on the verge of signing him.

Should the deal proceed it could have serious consequences for Chelsea midfielder Willian as he waits for Barcelona to match the Stamford Bridge club's £70m valuation.

Malcom has been attracting interest from the Premier League and Serie A, and it had been expected that the Brazilian would sign for Roma after terms were agreed between the clubs and the player. "The operation will cost 41 million euros and 1 million in variables", Barcelona said in a statement.

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.

"The player will sign with the Club for the next five seasons, until the end of the 2022/23 season".

"Malcom is a daring, pacey forward with an ability to shoot from distance".

However, the Catalan giants have now snapped up the 21-year-old winger, who registered 12 goals and eight assists last season.

"Aside from his speed, he also has great technical ability and links up well with his team mates, one of the main aspects of Barça's football".

He will now, though, become Barcelona's second major signing of the summer window following the arrival of Clement Lenglet from Sevilla .
