Inter Milan are in pole position to sign Malcom (Picture: Getty)Liverpool are set to lose the race for Bordeaux star Malcom, according to reports in Italy.
Malcom has scored 23 goals in 96 appearances since joining Bordeaux back in 2016 but the 21-year-old is expected to move on from Ligue 1 in the coming months.
While Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea have all been linked with Malcom, Liverpool are the club that have stepped up their pursuit of the Brazilian in recent days.
Gianluca Di Marzio suggests Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund have all tabled offers for the attacker this week.
However, the three European giants are all set to fail with their bids as Inter Milan are closing in on a deal for Malcom.

It’s claimed Inter held a positive meeting on Monday night and Malcom is believed to have said ‘yes’ to the transfer.
Inter, though, have only offered £35million for Malcom which is around £10m short of Bordeaux’s asking price.
