Malcom has distanced himself from a move to Arsenal by insisting that he is happy to stay at Barcelona. Earlier this week, reports claimed that the Brazilian has asked to leave Barcelona as he is unhappy with his lack of playing time since his arrival at Camp Nou. The Spanish champions signed Malcom for £36.5 million from Bordeaux in the summer. But the 21-year-old has played just 25 minutes in La Liga this season and was given his first start on Wednesday as Barca narrowly beat third-tier side Cultural Leonesa in the Copa del Rey. Arsenal were reportedly keen on signing Malcom in the summer and the Gunners have been linked once again ahead of the January transfer window.

But the winger is adamant he wants to remain at Camp Nou, despite his lack of minutes on the pitch. ‘About news that came out here in Spain, I want to clarify this: I came to Barcelona with many objectives, and those who know me know that I am a very determined person,” Malcom wrote on Instagram.

 

 

I’m very happy with my development with every passing day. ‘My objective is to make my dreams come true. ‘My family is also adapting very well to the city. Anyway, I’ll continue fighting for everything I desire in my career.’
