Forgotten Chelsea midfielder Jeremie Boga has moved to Italian Serie A club Sassuolo on a permanent deal according to The Blues’ official website.

The 21-year-old Marseille-born midfielder has made just one senior appearance for The Blues, starting against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on the opening day of last season and looked to have a real challenge on his hands to become a first team regular for the South West Londoners.

It has now been reported that Boga has left The Bridge and has opted to join Italian club Sassuolo in a transfer deal reportedly worth around £3.5 million to former club Chelsea.

In 2008, Boga joined The Blues’ academy system with his father having moved from France to work in London. The youngster went on to lift the FA Youth Cup on two occasions for Chelsea while he also won the Professional Under-21 Development League and UEFA Youth League with the club.

Boga returned to his native France in 2015 as he joined Rennes on a season-long loan before enjoying similar spells with Spanish club Granada and Sky Bet Championship club Birmingham City.

In total, the midfielder has already made 93 senior appearances at club level and has scored seven goals but sadly, just one of those outings came for his parent club.
