Barcelona want Chelsea target Jeremie Boga

Barcelona hold an interest in signing Sassuolo winger Jeremie Boga – who has been linked with a return to Chelsea – say El Mundo Deportivo.

Boga joined Sassuolo from Chelsea in the summer of 2018, having been unable to establish himself at Stamford Bridge.

The 23-year-old has starred for the Serie A club this season and has netted seven goals, while Chelsea reportedly have a €4m option to buy him back, which may yet be exercised.

However, the Frenchman – who spent the 2016-17 season on loan at Spanish club Granada – played just one match across three seasons for the English club.

Diario Sport reported previously that a meeting took place in Milan – where the Blaugrana played Inter in the Champions League – in December with Sassuolo sporting director Giovanni Carnevali present along with Barca vice president Jordi Cardoner and CEO Óscar Grau.

Boga could be viewed as an affordable market option for the Catalan giants to boost their squad.
