January 27 According to the latest report from Football.London Chelsea writer Bobby Vincent
, Gusto has reached a personal agreement with Chelsea and hopes to move to Stamford Bridge before the deadline next week.
Lyon’s stance hasn’t stopped Chelsea either, the Blues have been told similar news many times in this window, Monaco are adamant they won’t sell Badia Shearer, and PSV are no different with Maduek.
However, Chelsea do not want to be blackmailed in negotiations.
Clubs are aware of the Blues’ financial resources and how much they spent on signings last summer and this month.
Chelsea’s first official offer was 17 million euros, and the second verbal offer was 23 million euros. Lyon both expressed their rejection, but Chelsea still hope to make a second official offer to Gusto before the end of the transfer window.
