Lyon eye Lamptey as 'Gusto replacement'


Lyon are reportedly looking to replace Chelsea-bound Malo Gusto with Brighton’s ex-Blue Tariq Lamptey.

Gusto, 19, is one of Chelsea’s top targets ahead of Tuesday’s transfer deadline.

And Todd Boehly is hopeful of finally securing a deal for the right-back after having an initial bid rejected.

A move is starting to look inevitable after Gusto agreed personal terms on a six-and-a-half year contract.

Yet Lyon continue to resist as they hold out for around £30million.

Even so, Fabrizio Romano claims the French side are already scouring the market for a replacement.

And their top target to replace Gusto is Lamptey.

The 22-year-old joined Brighton from Chelsea three years ago, having been rated as one of England’s top young defenders.
