Jeremie Boga along with a few other names have been identified as the potential alternative if the Blues fail to secure the services of Sancho from Dortmund. This has raised a bit of split opinions in the Chelsea fan base, while some section of the fans want Chelsea to go all-in for Sancho, some section of the fans believe Boga is a better and a cheaper option, and that Sancho hasn’t done enough or proven himself enough to demand a 400k a week wages.
For me, even though Sancho is a top-quality player and his CV for Dortmund speaks for itself, I think Chelsea should go for Boga, I have watched him play during his time at Chelsea and seen what he can do and what he is doing at Sassuolo, there is no doubt that he has not only similar qualities to Sancho, he also has the right tough mentality and physicality to play in the premier league. He knows the premier league very well, and even though he wasn’t given the time to fully develop and show what he can do in the premier league, he has gone to a very tactical and tough league like the Serie A and proven that he has what it takes to play at the top level.
With the potential departure of the likes of Pedro and Willian who have done really well for Chelsea, Boga will most likely be a suitable replacement for either of both as Chelsea have already secured the signing of Hakim Ziyech. The qualities that Boga possesses, he will bring the Hazard qualities that Chelsea have been missing since Hazard left for Real Madrid, a player who can single-handedly dribble pass opponents in the box, most especially against teams that park the bus, which has been one of Chelsea biggest problems this season.
