Tottenham are increasingly confident of winning the race to sign Bordeaux forward Malcom this month.
The understanding is Malcom, who has already scored seven goals in Ligue 1 this term, is keen to secure a Premier League move and wants to play in the Champions League.
But a deal is being discussed that would loan the 20-year-old back to Bordeaux, who are fighting relegation and reluctant to lose a key player mid-season.
It is understood Malcom is happy to see the campaign out with his current team. Bordeaux brought the then 18-year-old to Europe from Corinthians only two years ago.
Mauricio Pochettino would also struggle to include the Brazilian in his Champions League squad, which already boasts the full allocation of non-home grown players.
Pochettino stayed tight-lipped when asked about Malcom on Friday.
"He has been linked with different clubs," Pochettino said. "I don't want to speak about players that are in other clubs."
Germany midfielder Leon Goretzka admits nothing he can say will ease the disappointment of the Schalke fans following his decision to join Bayern Munich in the summer.
The 22-year-old is Schalke's leading player, but has signed a four-year contract with Bayern to take effect from July 1, the Bundesliga champions announced.
Goretzka, who had been a reported target for several Premier League sides, including Liverpool, passed a medical on Thursday.
"I know that in doing this I am disappointing all of you and you will have little understanding of it," he said in a message to Schalke supporters on his Facebook page.
"Any statement I make now would not be well received by you.
"I do not want to say goodbye now because there is still the second half of the season to play.
"And anyone who knows me even a little knows that as always I will give my all. I want to take Schalke back into the Champions League and I want to win the DFB-Pokal on May 19 in Berlin."
Andy Carroll faces another lengthy spell on the sidelines after West Ham manager David Moyes confirmed he may require surgery.
Carroll, linked with a move to Chelsea during the transfer window, has been absent from West Ham's recent fixtures with an ankle issue.
The Hammers had hoped the 29-year-old, whose career has been scuppered by a host of injuries, would be missing for only a number of weeks.
But Moyes, speaking ahead of his side's Premier League clash against Bournemouth on Saturday, conceded that he could now be ruled out for months.
"We found out yesterday after Andy went for a scan and it showed up that he has got a problem," Moyes said. "We are not sure whether the ankle will need an operation or not.
"We are getting two or three specialists to look at it and then we will be able to make the correct decision. Hopefully we will know within a week."
Gerard Pique has signed a new deal with Barcelona that will keep him at the club until 2022.
The 30-year-old defender joined the Catalan giants in 2008 after a short spell at Manchester United.
Barcelona said a buy-out clause was in the contract for 500million euros.
Theo Walcott has revealed he was talked into swapping Arsenal for Everton by former England team-mate Wayne Rooney.
The 28-year-old forward, who won two FA Cups with Arsenal, completed his switch from the Gunners to Goodison Park on a three-and-a-half-year contract on Wednesday evening.
Walcott joined for an undisclosed fee but manager Sam Allardyce's second signing of the January transfer window reportedly cost £20million.
And the England international insists Rooney's advice was a major factor as he targets trophies with the Toffees.
"I had numerous chats with Wayne and that was one massive factor which really tempted me to come to Everton," Walcott told evertontv. "He told me it was a great place to play football and a club that is on the up. Those are the reasons I came here.
"This is a club with great history. The fans are brilliant, they are always passionate... and I used to find it very tough playing here.
"You want to be part of something and Wayne feels Everton are really going to improve."
