Welcome back, Welcome back, Welcome back? Italians admits talks with Chelsea about stunning return
Former Chelsea winger Jeremie Boga could be brought back to Stamford Bridge in the summer following his impressive form for Italian side Sassuolo this season.
We were heavily linked with a number of January moves last months, as speculation increased that Frank Lampard id desperate to spend some serious money and bring in a new defender, midfielder and forward to the side.
We have been linked with some of the games biggest and best defenders, but the independent has claimed that it could be a former star that arrives at the club at the end of the season, with reports Boga is back on the shopping list.
The 23-year-old made just one senior appearance for us before he joined the Serie A club on a permanent deal in 2018, but after watching him score six goals and contribute three assists in 22 games this season, Sassuolo club president Giovanni Carnevali indicated we have a buy-back clause for Boga and could decide to exercise it at the end of the season.
‘Chelsea can redeem him in June,’ said Carnevali to Goal.com’s Italian language website.
‘We have a great relationship with the club and we already met them before Christmas – also for other business.
‘We like to have what we have with Barcelona, to have a collaborative relationship.
‘They can take him back but we can also re-sign him, everything is open.’
Look, Boga has been doing very, very well in Seria A over the last few seasons, but at the end of the day, the Premier League is a completely different story and he may indeed struggle to break into the side next season.
We may want him back, but honestly, what impact would he make on the side?
