Everton reviving their interest in £36.5m Barcelona star would be a massive statement from Marco Silva

Everton opinion: Silva should reignite interest in Malcom

Italian news outlet Calciomercato has reported that AC Milan are keen on a move for Barcelona’s Malcom. The forward joined the club for £36.5m in the summer and has endured a torrid time ever since.

He has made just 19 appearances in all competitions. Most of the appearances have come off the bench. The Daily Mail has also revealed that Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde doesn’t fancy him.

The Toffees were linked with a move in January, but nothing ever materialised (Daily Mail).

The additions of Bernard, Lucas Digne, Richarlison and Andre Gomes have changed the team for the better. Marco Silva has given the club an attacking flair that they missed earlier. Yet, the burden of scoring goals has weighed far too heavily on the shoulders of Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The pair have stepped up with 24 goals together, but they need help from their team-mates. Malcom could potentially help in reducing this burden, as his performances for Bordeaux showcased.

In his final season in the Ligue 1, Malcom contributed to 20 goals in 35 appearances, finishing his career at Bordeaux, having created and scored 39 goals in 96 appearances.

That’s an incredible tally for any forward, as it averages to a goal every 2.5 games. Any move will be hard to come by but so were the moves for Lucas Digne and Yerry Mina.

Malcom deserves a chance to prove himself with a manager who actually wants him at the club.
