Chelsea have decided against using their buyback clause for Sassuolo’s Jérémie Boga, despite the 23-year-old having emerged as one of the best young wingers in Serie A. Instead the club are negotiating with Sassuolo to include a sell-on clause for the Ivory Coast international, who is likely to be sold this summer.

Boga came through the Chelsea youth system and made the step to the senior squad in 2015 but played only 18 minutes of competitive football for the first team, against Burnley in the Premier League in December 2017. He had loan spells at Rennes, Granada and Birmingham before being sold to Sassuolo in the summer of 2018.
