Napoli make Boga the first choice to replace Callejon

Napoli have made Sassuolo winger Jeremie Boga their first choice to replace Jose CallejonGazzetta dello Sport reports.

The 23-year-old is attracting lots of interest across Europe, particularly in Serie A where he has impressed.

AC Milan are among his suitors, but Napoli are in the race and are serious about Boga.

The Partenopei need to replace Jose Callejon, who will leave when his contract expires on June 30.

And it is Boga who tops the list of sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli ahead of Bologna’s Riccardo Orsolini.

Boga’s former club Chelsea have decided not to use their €15m buy-back clause, meaning clubs will have to negotiate directly with Sassuolo.

Sassuolo value Boga at €20m-plus and Napoli are working fast to sign him, eager to avoid an auction.

Contacts between the Serie A clubs have begun, with Boga in pole position to replace Callejon at the San Paolo.

Boga has made 24 appearances in Italy’s top flight this season with a return of eight goals and two assists.
