After Alexis Sanchez was nowhere to be seen on Sunday at Bournemouth, it became clear that the Chilean is heading for the Arsenal exit door.

At the same time reports out of France, and via Malcom’s inner circle, all signalled that the Brazilian is Arsenal bound.

Malcom is set to leave Bordeaux for the Emirates Stadium this transfer window.

Balague also remarked that while Malcom is exciting, he’s far from the finished product.
