Malcom has been setting the Ligue 1 on fire this season and many top Premier League clubs have shown an interest in signing up the Brazilian wonder wizkid.
Up until now, the Gunners were said to be the odds out favourites to landing the forward but now Spurs seems to have beaten their rivals to the race.
According to the bookies, Arsenal were the 7/4 favourites to sign Malcom and Tottenham were at 12/1.
Now though the bookmakers have slashed their odds meaning the Lilywhites are now the favourites to sign Malcom.

Tottenham are close to sign Malcom from Bordeaux. His agents met Mauricio Pochettino and Daniel Levy this week in London and were absolutely delighted with what they heard. It is likely to be a £40m + £10m deal.
