Arsenal transfer target Malcom faces a disciplinary hearing at Bordeaux.

The 20-year-old forward was shown on a social media video laughing and joking alongside team-mates Cafu and Otavio following defeat by Caen on Tuesday.

Bordeaux, who signed the Brazilian from Corinthians in 2016, said the players showed a "lack of maturity, solidarity and respect towards the institution".

The club said it "strongly condemns" the video and a disciplinary interview will be held as soon as possible.

Malcom has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal having caught the eye at Bordeaux, where he has scored 18 goals in 80 appearances.

However any deal is subject to Gunners forward Theo Walcott completing a move to Everton.

Arsenal are also interested in Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and it is unlikely they will move for all three players.
