Chelsea youngster Jeremie Boga impressed in Chelsea’s pre-season back in 2017 under Antonio Conte and was one of Chelsea’s best players before start of that season.
He started Chelsea’s first game of the season against Burnley, but had to be taken off after an early red card to Gary Cahill just after 18 minutes.
Boga didn’t get the opportunity to fight for a Chelsea shirt and was subsequently loaned out.
The 22-year-old was sold to Serie A side Sassulo last year and has now established himself as a key player at Sassuolo, scoring a goal in a 2-2 draw away at Juventus on Sunday.
Boga has now revealed that he’s keen on playing for Chelsea but is hopeful that his time will come in the near future.
He told Foot Mercato: “Everything in its time. It certainly was not the time for me to play for Chelsea.
“I always keep it in a corner of my mind. If I continue to do what I do, work hard, maybe I’ll go back one day.”
The Ivorian has been in good form recently and has been involved in five goals in his last seven Serie A games for Sassuolo scoring four and assisting one.
Boga is watching Chelsea youngsters impress under Frank Lampard, and he has revealed that he’s happy for Tammy Abraham who was his mate in the Chelsea academy.
Boga added: “For those who do not know him, it’s impressive what he does. I’ve known him since we were little, we are of the same generation 97 in Chelsea. I know his potential.
“He has always been a scorer, scoring 20 to 25 goals per season in all categories of youth. So what he does today does not surprise me. I am very happy for him.”
