OYOGist.com has learned that Chelsea have decided not to exercise the buy-back option in Jeremie Boga’s contract at Sassuolo, with the club now negotiating a sell-on clause for the Ivory Coast international.
The Blues sold Boga to the Serie A club in 2018 after a string of loan spells at Rennes, Granada and Birmingham. During his time in Italy, the 23-year-old has excelled which has seen him net 11 goals in 52 league appearances for Sassuolo.
Chelsea had agreed a £13 million buy-back option for Boga, but as per the Guardian, they will opt against bringing him back to west London. Instead they will look to agree a sell-on clause, who is set to be sold this summer.
Boga has attracted interest from Serie A duo Napoli and AC Milan. He had hinted back in March that he would be open to returning to Chelsea one day. “When I was there, it was Willian, Hazard, Pedro,” Boga told The Athletic.”
“When Mourinho was there, it was Salah. There were a lot of good wingers. For me, it has always been if I can’t play, then I will try to go on loan or try to go somewhere to improve, then maybe come back one day.”
