Serie-A giants Juventus want to sign French junior international Malo Gusto from Lyon in the next summer transfer window.
Mallo Gusto started his football journey in the academy of AS Villefontaine. He trained for three years in that club and then joined the youth setup of Bourgoin-Jallieu.
However, after just one season, he was roped in by french giants Lyon. Gusto gradually developed in the academy of Lyon and was promoted to the main team in 2021.
Malo got his breakthrough last year and cemented his spot in the starting eleven of Lyon. The right-back has also represented France in many age-group-level tournaments. Overall he is one of the most promising talents from France.
Juventus Want to Sign Malo Gusto
According to a report from TuttoJuve, Serie-A giants Juventus are interested in roping in the French junior international Malo Gusto from Lyon.
After dominating the Serie-A for a decade, Juventus have failed to secure the top three in their last two terms. Even in this season, they did not have a good start. The Bianconeri have won only five of their first eleven matches so far.
They are currently in the seventh position in the table. their condition in the European competition is even poor. Juventus have lost three of their first four matches and are on the verge of getting knocked out.
They desperately need new arrivals in multiple positions. including a new right-back. Massimiliano Allegri’s side currently doesn’t have a single natural right-back in their squad.
Hence they are looking at many right-back options. And now Malo Gusto has joined that list. At 19, Gusto is considered one of the highest-rated talents in French Ligue 1.
Although it is only his second season in the top flight, he has shown great maturity whenever he played. As a fullback, he is very offensive-minded and also is a great athlete. Gusto’s technical abilities are top notch and he has shown his playmaking skills from his academy days.
If Juventus can sign him, he will be a great addition to their squad. But to do so, they will have to pay a hefty price to the French club Lyon.
Earlier B Barcelona and Manchester United enquired about the right-back during the summer transfer window. Although a deal did not materialise, it is an indication that the Bianconeri will have competition from other teams too.
