Ivory Coast international Jérémie Boga is eager for Chelsea return because of Frank Lampard despite strong interest from Napoli.

The 23-year-old Ivory Coast international moves tp Serie A club Sassuolo for a fee of £3.5 million in July 2018 and have racked up 11 goals and five assists in 52 appearances.

Boga has drawn attention from Chelsea after stunning impressive form for Serie A side and is viewed as a long-term replacement for the Blues veteran Willian but according to Italian outlet, CalcioMercato claims that Napoli are waiting in the wings with £18.5m despite the Marseille-born eager to play under Lampard.

The English coach have changed a little at Stamford Bridge, with a host of Boga’s former academy teammates being given their shot in the first team.

“When I was there, it was Willian, Hazard, Pedro,” Boga told The Athletic.

“When Mourinho was there, it was Salah.

“There were a lot of good wingers. For me, it has always been if I can’t play, then I will try to go on loan or try to go somewhere to improve, then maybe come back one day.

“I think our generation was one of the best Chelsea ever had.

“We had so many talented players. It was not easy but every weekend, we were so used to winning 2-0 or 3-0.”

Boga has bagged eight goals and four assists from 25 appearances in all competitions this season.
