Blow for Spurs and Newcastle?
Chelsea’s reported bid for Malo Gusto will come as a blow for Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United.
Spurs and Newcastle have also been linked with the France Under-21 international right-back.
Last week, FootMercato claimed that Newcastle were ready to make a big offer for Lyon right-back Gusto.
The French news outlet reported interest from Tottenham, La Liga giants Real Madrid and Barcelona, as well as Serie A powerhouse Juventus in the French teenager.
It seems that it is Chelsea who have taken the first step to securing the services of the France Under-21 international right-back.
And now it is up to Tottenham and Newcastle to try to match or better that offer.
