Report: Ancelotti now 'very keen' to sign £15m star for Everton, but another PL club want him

Federico Bernardeschi of Juventus competes for the ball with Jeremie Boga of US Sassuolo during the Serie A match between Juventus and US Sassuolo on December 1, 2019 in Turin, Italy.

Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion could be set to do battle for Jeremie Boga in the summer transfer window.

Jeremie Boga of Sassuolo looks on during the Serie A match between US Sassuolo and Chievo at Mapei Stadium - Citta' del Tricolore on April 4, 2019 in Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy.

According to the Daily Express, Everton are ‘very keen’ on signing Jeremie Boga, but they now face competition from Brighton & Hove Albion.

Boga is said to be available for £15 million, with Sassuolo open to selling him.

Chelsea have a buy-back option in the deal, and may take it up, but Everton and Brighton remain keen.

 

Boga has impressed in Serie A this term, where he has scored seven goals, and there is a feeling that he could improve Everton and Brighton’s attacks.

Carlo Ancelotti should know Boga well, given his links with Italian football, and he is apparently a winger who he feels would improve his current options.

Carlo Ancelotti the head coach

Boga could replace Theo Walcott in Everton’s starting line-up, as the England international just has one goal to his name this season.

Boga’s main strength lies with his ability to run at players, and the skilful winger could be a handful for opposition sides to mark if he was to move to the Premier League in the summer.
