Done Deal: Chelsea have agreed a €30m deal to sign Ligue 1 star, their seventh signing

Chelsea have agreed to sign right-back Maro Gusto from Lyon, but the player will remain at the French club for the remainder of the season.

Chelsea are looking to add depth to their right-back position and have identified 19-year-old Gast as an ideal candidate.

Lyon initially resisted the interest of the Blues, with president Jean-Michel Auras publicly declaring that Gast would “continue to play” for them until the end of the season.

A deal worth around €30m (£26m) has been agreed between the two clubs.

The player has also agreed personal terms with the club and now plans to travel to England to complete his medical care.

However, he will be loaned to Lyon until the end of the season and will join Chelsea’s side next season.

Fabrizio Romano also confirmed a deal with his trademark Here We Go:
