Arsenal target Malcom has been unsettled by speculation linking him with a £45m move, according to his coach at Bordeaux.

The Brazilian winger, who assisted the only goal in a 1-0 win over Troyes at the weekend, has scored seven Ligue Un goals this season.

Bordeaux manager Jocelyn Gourvennec told the French media: “I can’t deny that he’s being followed by a lot of people. With Malcom, I go from day-to-day.

“He’s committed. He’s a bit, like he was in the summer… I wouldn’t say he has been disturbed by it, that’s a bit strong, he’s not disturbed, but he is asking questions.

“He’s asking himself what’s the best thing for him, for his future. That’s logical. If he’s asking questions and he still manages to make assists or score goals, it’ll be fine.”

Bizarrely, Gourvennec then mentioned another English Premier League club, saying: “If Liverpool want you to work for them tomorrow, you’d go. I’m a coach, I’d like to be able to count on Malcom, Malcom has to help us.

“There is one person who decides in this, that’s the majority shareholder. He talked about this at the weekend, but football remains football.”
