Speaking to Téléfoot Chaine, Rennes manager Julien Stéphan confirmed an interest in Sassuolo’s 23-year-old Ivorian winger Jérémie Boga.
“I can’t speak about numbers. He is quite simply a player who is coming out of a very good spell with Sassuolo. He has very interesting characteristics in terms of his penetration, his pace and his ability to finish off moves. We know him well at the club as he was on loan here a few seasons ago. At the time, I was in charge of the reserves, we got to know each other in certain instances, we know each other. He is a player who is one of our potential targets, they is enormous competition with very big clubs – we will see what happens in the coming weeks and months.”
