Chelsea are set to benefit from Rennes’ move for Sassulo winger Jeremie Boga.
The Blues recently turned a buy-back clause for Boga into a sell-on clause, which will see them earn 10 – 15 percent of any potential move.
A number of clubs are keen on Boga, including Rennes, who Goal reported will have to pay €30m for the Ivory Coast international.
Rennes coach Julien Stephan recently confirmed his interest in the 23-year-old.
“I can’t speak about numbers. He is quite simply a player who is coming out of a very good spell with Sassuolo,” Stephan told Telefoot.

“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, there is enormous competition with very big clubs – we will see what happens in the coming weeks and months.”
