Jeremie Boga’s brother and agent Daniel said he is unsure whether Chelsea will trigger the buy-back clause for the Sassuolo winger amid interest from several clubs.

The 23-year-old has been turning heads in Serie A this season and already has eight goals and two assists from 24 appearances.

But it is his dribbling ability that has been really outstanding, completing 4.4 take-ons per game.

Boga’s brother Daniel, who is also his agent, told Calciomercato: “He made himself the protagonist of a good season.

“As for AC Milan, I have not yet had contact with them. I don’t know if they are really interested in Jeremie.”

Daniel confirmed he had spoken to several clubs already, saying: “Yes with Napoli, Atalanta and other European clubs.”

But when asked whether Chelsea will exercise the buy-back option, he answered: “This, at the moment, I can’t tell you.”

A report from Sport Mediaset claimed Chelsea inserted a €16million (£14.3m) buy-back clause when they sold the winger to Sassuolo back in 2018.

It would be less than the €20m (£18m) valuation Sassuolo placed on the winger.

However, the report said Chelsea are not interested in bringing back the Ivory Coast international since they already have Mason Mount, Christian Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi and upcoming summer signing Hakim Ziyech.
