Chelsea want to re-sign Ivorian winger for £12.8m

Boga set for Chelsea return?

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is reportedly considering the option of re-signing Jeremie Boga from Serie A side Sassuolo.

Boga made just one competitive appearance for the Blues in his career and he spent most of the time on loan with the likes of Rennes, Granada and Birmingham City.

Since the summer of 2018, Boga has been plying his trade for Sassuolo whom he joined on a permanent basis, and his form has been impressive this season with eight goals and four assists from 24 Serie A games.

According to The Mail, the west London side have the option to re-sign Boga for around £12.8m this summer and Lampard is said to be contemplating over the buy-back clause.

The Blues have already been in contact with Sassuolo regarding the player's future and it remains to be seen whether the Ivory Coast international will return to familiar surroundings in London.

Lampard has built his reputation on the development of young players and Boga perfectly fits into the manager's plans. The 23-year-old can play across the attack but he has preferred to feature on the left wing.
