Arsenal ready to battle Man Utd for Malo Gusto?

arsenal ready to battle man utd for malo gusto

Arsenal could compete with Manchester United to sign Lyon defender Malo Gusto, according to journalist Dean Jones.

The Gunners currently have Ben White as the regular right-back under manager Mikel Arteta. Takehiro Tomiyasu has been his deputy.

There is no reason to change things at the moment, but Jones claims that the Gunners may want a more creative right-back in the future.

It is added that Gusto could be under consideration for a transfer, given his immense development at Lyon over the past 18 months.

The 19-year-old has been brilliant with his all-round displays for Les Gones and has been dubbed as the new Trent Alexander-Arnold.

United are said to be interested in signing him for around €30m and it remains to be seen whether Arsenal enter the pursuit.

A January deal appears unlikely on the cards for either club. There could be a bidding battle between the two for him in the summer.

Gusto is widely expected to be sold by Les Gones as he has turned down a contract extension beyond the 2023/24 campaign.
