He is expected to spend the rest of the season on loan at Lyon.
The Blues have had a productive January transfer window signing six players to beef up the team.
David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, Mykhailo Mudryk and Joao Felix have all pitched their tent with Chelsea.
Gusto came through Lyon’s academy and made his first team debut in January 2021.
He has made 15 appearances for Lyon in the Ligue 1 this season.
The 19-year-old is expected to compete with Reece James in the right back position.
