Arsenal join race to sign 23-year-old Ivory Coast international
Gunners and Red Devils are amongst the top sides that have ‘timid’ approaches to sign Sassuolo star Jeremie Boga. Ivory Coast international joined Sassuolo on an initial loan deal in the summer of 2018, which was made permanent last summer, he has become a real force since moving to Italy.
Jeremie has caught the eye of many clubs, with Napoli already seeing a €22m bid for his services rejected. It’s claimed that bids in the region of €30m may turn Sassuolo’s head, many top European clubs, including Borussia Dortmund, are also eyeing Boga, as well as Sevilla and Barcelona.
The 23-year-old winger has bagged 10 goals and four assists in 28 Serie A games this campaign, he is primarily used as a left-winger, but has also starred as a striker.
The Ivorian forward has really taken his game to the next level over the last year, the talent can expect some signings to his single cap for the winger once international football is cleared to resume.
Gunners currently field striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the left-wing, with the star often drifting centrally from this position. Jeremie is also comfortable on the opposite flank, Arsenal could do with a slightly more experienced option than Gabriel Martinelli and Reiss Nelson to push Nicolas Pepe.
Man United are also in need of bolstering their wide options, especially since Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford have been deployed as strikers since the Norwegian boss took charge. Jeremie’s career is certainly on the up, Sassuolo certainly won’t be able to resist approaches if the skilled dribbler continues to perform like he is.
