Chelsea eye Lyon defender Malo Gusto. Malo Gusto, a young player from Lyon, is a potential transfer target for Chelsea in the January transfer window as they aim to increase competition for Reece James, who is prone to injuries.
According to certain sources, the American owner Todd Boehly would do whatever to sign the 19-year-old French defender for The Blues and bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Gusto is reportedly at the top of the Premier League club’s list, but a January deal may be challenging, according to L’Equipe.

Lyon would prefer to let the player depart in the summer, but any prospective transfer would probably require Chelsea paying a little bit more than the player is worth.
Malo Gusto, who is highly regarded in France, is only going to learn and develop while wearing a Chelsea jersey at the age of 19. His role is to give Reece James some serious competition.
Chelsea, who are presently 10th in the English Premier League standings, are struggling with their form.
Since the beginning of the current campaign, the club has added no fewer than ten players, including Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, David Datro Fofana, Joao Felix, Carney Chukwuemeka, Noni Maduke, Kalidou Kolibaly, Raheem Sterling, Marc Cucurella, Wesley Fofana, Mykhaylo Mudryk, and Denis Zakaria.
