Chelsea in direct contact with Olympique Lyon for Malo Gusto
As @sebnonda claimed, Chelsea’s verbal bid for Gusto was turned down by the French club who want to keep hold of the teenager at least until the summer. However, that could be really difficult.
Gusto has really impressed with his performances for the French club. He is considered a huge French talent who has great potential in the game. He could realise that at Chelsea.
The 19-year-old’s contract there runs up until the summer of 2024 (Transfermarkt). Gusto is undoubtedly going to join a big club soon and Chelsea are hoping to convince him in the coming days.
As talented as James is, he has been unable to stay fit for a sustained period. This means that Chelsea have often had to depend on other players to fill in in the absence of the Englishman.
This is where Gusto makes a lot of sense. Unlike a lot of players who Chelsea have signed in recent times, this is a signing that they actually need and would be a good addition.
Gusto is a right-back who can either play as a centre-back or a right-wing-back. His abilities going forward are well-documented but he can also hold his own defensively.

In the next few days, we’ll know if we manage to sign Gusto. He will be a great signing but he is still very young and this could be one for the future rather than the present.
