Barcelona outcast Malcom has reportedly decided that he wants to leave the club this summer.

The Brazilian was set to join Roma from Bordeaux last July, until Barça swooped in with a late bid and signed him for €40m instead.

However, coach Ernesto Valverde openly suggested he didn’t want the player by labelling him “a signing made by the club”.

According to ESPNFC, Malcom believes he hasn’t been treated fairly by Valverde despite impressing when afforded opportunities.

The 21-year-old has been happy to work hard and fight for his place, but is beginning to grow frustrated with his situation and wants regular football next season.

Roma, Inter and AC Milan are all said to be interested in the forward, with Everton and Arsenal also assessing his situation.
