Malo Gusto is an emerging talent in European football, with many big clubs battling for the 19-year-old’s signature. With Olympique Lyonnais’ man primarily developing in an attacking midfield position, Gusto’s move to right-back has attracted attention from clubs around the world for his combination of attacking play and the ability to defend.
