90 min have revealed that Tottenham Hotspur are among a whole host of clubs currently scouting Lyon right-back Malo Gusto.
Gusto only broke into Lyon’s senior side back in January but the teenager is already emerging as one of the best young full-backs in Europe.
The marauding right-back’s performances are said to have caught the attention of several big hitters across the continent, with Tottenham thought to be one of the clubs who have sent representatives to France to watch the youngster in action this season.
90 min add that Manchester United and Barcelona have had their eye on Gusto for much of the year and even enquired about his availability during the summer transfer window.
In addition, the likes of Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Manchester City, are alleged to hold an interest in the 19-year-old.
The report asserts that Lyon are keen to tie down Gusto to a new contract, with his current deal running until 2024.
Spurs Web Opinion
I have no doubts that Tottenham will be in the market for a right wing-back next summer as Doherty is now in the twilight of his career while Emerson has not proven to be a good fit for the role.
One would expect Spurs to bring in another up-and-coming right-back to battle it out with Djed Spence next season, assuming the former Middlesbrough youngster progresses as expected.
