Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali has reaffirmed their intentions to keep hold of Jeremie Boga.
The former Chelsea wing-back is sought by clubs across Europe.
“When he arrived here with us, few knew who Boga was, so our scouting department deserves credit for finding this talent and our coach Roberto De Zerbi for helping him to grow,” Sassuolo director Giovanni Carnevali told Rai Radio 1.
“He has many offers from Italy and abroad. Sassuolo made a real effort to sign him outright and now we will evaluate the situation. The objective is to keep him with us, because we must have a project and focus on growth. Sacrificing the biggest names is sometimes necessary, but not always.
“Boga will continue to have clubs clamouring for him, and it’ll be good for us if he continues to get stronger. The aim is to keep him at Sassuolo.”
