Lyon remain interested in Sassuolo’s Jérémie Boga

Le Progrès reports this evening that Lyon are still keeping tabs on Sassuolo forward Jérémie Boga. The Ivory Coast international is said to be interested in the project set up by Peter Bosz and Juninho – manager and director of sport, respectively – and grew up a Lyon fan. 

The Neroverdi have set their asking price for the Frenchman at €30m, having initially valued Boga at €20m. Fellow Serie A club Atalanta have  bid €23m – it remains to be seen whether Lyon will have the financial means to improve on that offer and bring the Marseille native back to Ligue 1.

Les Gones had initially registered their interest in the 24-year-old earlier in the transfer window, with Boga himself open to the potential move, while Marseille were also keeping tabs. 

Boga has played in Serie A for the last three seasons, impressing in an entertaining Sassuolo side formerly managed by Roberto De Zerbi which has been improving year-on-year. He had previously come through the Chelsea academy, and undergone loan spells at Rennes, Granada and Birmingham City.
