Report: 'Powerful' player wants to sign for Chelsea as soon as possible, he convinced he's going to join
Reports have claimed that Malo Gusto wants to complete his move to Chelsea as soon as possible.
According to L’Equipe, the 19-year-old is convinced he’s going to be playing his football at Stamford Bridge going forwards.
The right-back has been strongly linked in recent days with the transfer from Ligue 1 to the Premier League.
It has been claimed that Gusto has agreed to personal terms over a long-term contract with the West London side, although things are not yet secured between the two sides.
Lyon really don’t want to lose him in the middle of the season, after he has burst onto the scene in France.
He has started nearly every game this season, establishing himself as a ‘powerful, attacking’ wing-back, in his own words.
Gusto wants Chelsea move now
There’s been plenty going on at Chelsea this month. Todd Boehly has taken particular care in addressing the attack.
They have also brought in Joao Felix on loan, with it yet to be seen if they secure a deal to permanently sign him at the end of the season.
Competition in the right-back role has been required for a number of weeks now, thanks to the injury of Reece James.
Therefore, there should be optimism over L’Equipe reporting Gusto is extremely keen on a move to Chelsea.
It will certainly be a busy week for the Blues before the January transfer window closes. There is still the potential that they bring in a central midfielder.
They have pushed to bring in Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo, although are being met by resistance by both of their current clubs.
