Chelsea could be set to re-sign Jeremie Boga from Sassuolo this summer, according to the Italian club’s president Giovanni Carnevali.

The Neroverdi signed Boga in 2018 for just €3.5m (£3m), but the Blues inserted a buy-back clause.

The French winger, 23, has finally settled in Serie A this season, hitting six goals and contributing three assists.

His form has not gone unnoticed around Italy either, with Napoli strongly linked, though a return to Stamford Bridge now appears to be a distinct possibility due to the buy-back clause initially inserted into the deal to send him to the Mapei Stadium.

“Chelsea can redeem him in June,” Carnevali told Goal.

“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.”

Boga has been impressing for Sassuolo this season

Sassuolo are now 13th and 10 points clear of relegation.

Boga will feature next against bottom club SPAL on Sunday.
