Everton are interested in signing out-of-favour Barcelona forward Malcom according to the latest report published in the Sport.
Everton are looking to build on their good relationship with Barca having already signed Yerry Mina and Lucas Digne permanently and Andre Gomes on a season-long loan for the Catalans.

A deal for Malcom should not be a tedious affair if all parties come to an agreement.
Malcom made only 22 appearances for Barcelona in his first season at the club of which only nine were from the start.
The Brazilian scored 5 goals and provided two assists and is looking for some quality playing time which Everton are ready to offer.
The Toffee’s themselves at times have suffered goal droughts last season and manager Marko Silva could use an attacker of Malcom’s prowess.
The former Bordeaux man scored 12 goals in 35 league games during his last campaign in the Ligue 1 earning him a move to the Camp Nou but has failed to make it into an already star-studded Barcelona attack.
He can take hope from the success story ex-Barca man Lucas Digne has been at Goodison Park if given more playing time.
The Brazilian is good with either foot and has a pacey, direct approach of play like fellow Brazilian Richarlison who’s the nation’s squad for upcoming Copa America.
