Malcom can operate on either wing and due to Bolasie closing in on a loan move to Fenerbache and Lookman’s future currently uncertain, Malcom proves to provide pace and dribbling ability but also mixes it with the end product that Yannick Bolasie failed to produce in his return from a long-term injury.
