Tottenham: Lilywhites officials sent on Malo Gusto mission -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Tottenham Hotspur, led by manager Antonio Conte, are now one of the clubs eyeing ‘exciting’ Lyon full-back Malo Gusto, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Spurs right-back debate…

Spurs have mostly turned to Brazil international and former Real Betis star Emerson Royal at right-wing-back this campaign but debate has surrounded his suitability for the role.

Matt Doherty, coming amid Emerson’s suspension after his north London derby sending off, returned to the side against Brighton and Hove Albion as the Premier League top-four challengers ran out 1-0 winners down south.

The Republic of Ireland international was praised for his taking his rare opportunity but reports suggest the Brazilian will return to Conte’s starting eleven.

Summer signing Djed Spence, despite his impressive 2021/2022 season on loan at Nottingham Forest, has also barely featured, as the right-wing-back role remains a point of contention at Spurs.

The Latest: Tottenham eye Gusto…

Now, as per a fresh report, it appears Tottenham have one eye on a very bright full-back option from Europe.

Indeed, 90min claim the Lilywhites are apparently one of a ‘host of clubs’ who are keeping ‘close tabs’ on Lyon defender Gusto – who is emerging as ‘one of the most in-demand’ starlets in Europe.

Conte’s side are joined by a contingent of major clubs in their interest with Spurs officials also sent to run the rule over Ligue 1’s teenage talent in recent weeks.

The Verdict: Exciting?

Described as ‘one of the most exciting RBs in the game’ by football scout writer Zach Lowy, the 19-year-old has already earned rave reviews for his handling of Paris Saint-Germain superstar Neymar.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

Contracted until 2024, Gusto can leave Lyon for nothing at the end of next season, a situation which could force the French side to cash in on him either in January or next summer.

The fact he is so in demand across Europe only backs his obvious ability and Spurs must surely consider moving in.
