Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Everton have been warned off Jeremie Boga with Sassuolo describing the in-form winger as ‘unsellable’, sporting director Giovanni Carnevali tells Corriere dello Sport, translated by Rai.
Just one year after swapping Chelsea for the Serie A outfit, speculation is rife that an explosive Ivory Coast international could be heading back to the Premier League – or London for that matter.
Goal reported in May that Boga has admirers at Everton and Brighton, with Frank Lampard’s Blues opting against exercising a £13.5 million buy-back clause in his contract.
Two of Chelsea’s major rivals now find themselves at the centre of the transfer saga too.
Calciomercato reported a few weeks ago that a Tottenham side badly in need of an attacking spark had their sights set on a balletic, bouncing winger who models himself on none other than Eden Hazard.
According to FootMercato, however, the £25 million-rated Boga was likely to be a little rich for a cash-strapped Arsenal side this summer.
Though if Sassuolo get their way, Arsenal will not be the only club priced-out of a deal for one of Serie A’s most influential attackers.
“The big guys will not leave. It is our desire for the team to improve,” Carnevali says.
“How much is Boga worth? I don’t ask myself that question for the simple fact that we don’t want to sell him. I declare him officially unsellable.
“Next season, he will stay at Sassuolo.”
While Boga is yet to add consistency to his speed, skill and eye-catching finishing skills, a tally of 11 goals in 30 games suggest he is on his way to living up to those Eden Hazard comparisons.
