19 year old Lyon right-back Malo Gusto has told the Lyon hierarchy that he only wants to join Chelsea, according to Foot Mercato.

Lyon have already rejected a €20million offer from Chelsea for the 19 year old right-back and the Blues are set to return with a second offer this week.

Chelsea are expected to return with a bid of between €30million to €40million, an offer which Lyon will reportedly struggle to resist.

Lyon are also reportedly hoping Chelsea allow Gusto spend the rest of the season with them on loan.

However, Gusto is keen on joining Chelsea as he has been guaranteed to play a certain number of matches as a starter during the second part of the season despite being back-up to Reece James at right-back.
