Malcom was signed by Barcelona in the summer and was tipped to become a star player for the Spaniards this season, but he has failed to live upto expectactions and has only started one League game this season.
His lack of game time has led to alot of speculation that Arsenal could try and get a deal done during the January window, as the Gunners were reportedly interested in a deal for the Brazilian just before he signed for Barcelona in a deal worth over £40 million.
But with speculation that Lazio and a number of Chinese clubs are interested in trying to sign Malcom, eports on the Mundo Deportivo website has now claimed Barcelona are open to the idea of letting Malcom go, if they can get close to £50 million for his services.
Unai Emery could reignite his interest in a deal for the 21-year old, as he is still desperate to add a bit more width to his side, especially as he has hopes of winning the Europa League and getting back into the Champions League.
Reports have claimed Arsenal are interested in signing Chelsea target Nicolo Barella from Cagliari.
The 21-year-old Italy international, who is under contract at the Serie A side until 2022, has been linked with Chelsea in recent days as Maurizio Sarri seeks a replacement for Cesc Fabregas.
Fabregas is heading to Monaco and Sarri has already admitted that he may need a signing this month, as the Spaniard will leave him with only five midfielders.
And Barella, who is regarded as an outstanding talent, has become a top transfer target after another impressive start to the new season, in which his performances has attracted interest from a whole host of big clubs.
Reports have even gone as far to say that Chelsea are in talks with the midfielder in hope of sealing a deal this month, but are not happy with paying the £45 million that Cagliair are seeking.
But according to Gianluca Di Marzio.com, Arsenal ahve now entered the chase to sign the highly-rated 21-year old and are prepared to meet the asking price of Cagliari, although they are not prepared to do a deal this month and are keen to wait until the summer.
However, the Italians are prepared to sell this month and will sell to Chelsea if the Blues come around to what the player is worth now, and will eventually be worth in a few seasons time.
Fresh reports have again claimed Arsenal have submitted a £35m bid for Roma star Cengiz Under.
Under has been in impressive form for Roma this season, scoring six goals and providing six assists and his performances for the Italian giants have reportedly linked him with a move to the premier League despite the fact he has a contract until 2022.
Gunners boss Unai Emery already has an array of talent in his midfield, but with with Aaron Ramsey seemingly on his way to Juventus, the Spanish boss will have a hole to fill when the Welshman finally leaves.
His displays have seen him linked with a move to the Premier League despite being under contract with the Serie A side until 2022.
And according to reports on the SSN wesbsite, Arsenal have submitted a £55 million offer to try and secure a deal for Under this month, with the player staying until the end of the season.
However, Roma are in no mood to sell and have swiftly rejected the offer as they believe the midfielder will not be sold in the coming transfer windows.
