Interest is mounting on the Blues’ academy graduate after a stellar season in Serie A, which has seen various interest from Serie A top clubs as well as few other candidates.
Chelsea have been in advanced talks with Serie A side Sassuolo, that will see them make an abysmal one-time fee and swap their buyback clause into a first choice on a future purchase of ex-youth academy star Jeremie Boga.
The Blues aren’t expected to take up this choice, but together with all the Ivorian in demand at a number of Serie A’s leading nightclubs.
Chelsea manager Marina Granovskaia transferred to conduct talks with Sassuolo to eliminate the $17 million buyback clause, that enabled Sassuolo to receive a deal when they signed up Boga for $4.9 million at 2018 cancel competition from Lille, Celta Vigo, and Real Betis.
Discussions on video conference calls between the 2 clubs had originally mentioned a 50 percent sell-on clause for Boga, who’s bringing attention from the likes of Napoli and Roma, but Chelsea will sit for the one-time commission rather than
Unlike most in Chelsea’s loan military, the Ivory Coast global believed he was not growing quickly enough by a system that sent him season-long loans to Rennes, Granada, and Birmingham City, and he pushed instead for a permanent departure.
Chelsea were inundated with requests for its then-21-year-old, which was deemed the gem of the academy, and they negotiated a very low cost with Sassuolo which enabled them to add a buyback clause of only $15m.
Some speculation indicated Chelsea might trigger the clause because Boga’s value climbed over the back of a series of impressive displays in Serie A this year.
Chelsea had agreed that they weren’t likely to make the most of this clause to purchase Boga to be able to loan out him or sell him. The west Londoners will probably be supplied with a small charge and will keep a positive connection with the Italian team and Boga.
Sassuolo chairman Giovanni Carnevali is under pressure to market Boga however will now seem to hold onto his celebrity despite increasing curiosity.
“Boga has grown a whole lot, we have to give credit to [Sassuolo trainer Roberto] De Zerbi who left him develop,” Carnevali stated on Rai TV Show, Domenica Sportiva.
“He’s asked by different clubs but we mean to keep him, we don’t wish to sell him since we’ll continue in the job that [owner] Dr. Squinzi had in your mind. He also [Boga] will probably be a Neroverde next year”
However, Serie A’s most significant clubs have been circling, together with Roma and Napoli staying at the front of the lineup despite reports of AC Milan’s increasing fascination.
Napoli had made an initial offer of $22 million for its 23-year-old and have placed a $1.5m-per-season contract on the table. But, it’s very likely to take more to convince Sassuolo to market up.
Sassuolo are anticipated to need over $33 million for its celebrity who’s seen admiring glances from Everton and Brighton from the Premier League.
In Milan‘s situation, there’s concern that fiscal challenges in the club will restrict their capacity to get him from Sassuolo.
