It is no secret that Manchester United are looking to add even more firepower to close the gap on Liverpool, the newly-crowned Premier League champions.
Although Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood have impressed with 51 goals between them this season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted he is eager to add to the attacking options at his disposal.
Solskjaer has made it clear that Jadon Sancho remains his top priority this summer, but now another name has entered the mix.
Jeremie Boga came through the famous Chelsea academy, although he spent the majority of his time out on loan, as has become tradition at Stamford Bridge. However, he grew frustrated by a lack of opportunities and promptly jumped ship to Sassuolo when the chance arose.
Boga has enjoyed his best season with the Neroverdi so far, scoring 10 goals in 28 games in Serie A, taking 1.7 shots and attempting 4.1 dribbles per game (via WhoScored).
His heroics have attracted attention from major European clubs like Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen and Barcelona. The 23-year-old is currently valued at £14m via Transfermarkt but it is likely that he won’t come cheap.
It is also worth pointing out that the Blues have a buy-back clause on their academy graduate, although it remains to be seen if they will exercise the option.
If the Red Devils are serious about buying Boga, they could face stiff competition for his signature, which explains why the board have “shown little interest of going further” for now.
United fans, do you think Ed Woodward should sign Jeremie Boga in the summer? Let us know down below!
