Sassuolo confirm Jeremie Boga ‘has offers from Italy and abroad, but the objective is to keep him’ at the Mapei Stadium.
The 23-year-old is in his second season at Sassuolo, having purchased him for €3m from Chelsea.
Although the Stamford Bridge team does have a buy-back option, it seems they have no real intention of using it.
“When he arrived here with us, few knew who Boga was, so our scouting department deserves credit for finding this talent and our coach Roberto De Zerbi for helping him to grow,” Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali told Rai Radio 1.
“He has many offers from Italy and abroad. Sassuolo made a real effort to sign him outright and now we will evaluate the situation. The objective is to keep him with us, because we must have a project and focus on growth. Sacrificing the biggest names is sometimes necessary, but not always.
“Boga will continue to have clubs clamouring for him, and it’ll be good for us if he continues to get stronger. The aim is to keep him at Sassuolo.”
