Since moving to Atalanta from Sassuolo in what was a 22 million euros deal back in July 2022, Jeremie Boga has gone on to feature only 6 times for the club.

The 25-year-old is considered to be one of the best wingers in Ivory Coast. Boga has scored one goal in 10 games for his country.

Brendan Rodgers wants to sign a new winger and Jeremie Boga is one of the names at the top of his wishlist. Rodgers has always been a manager who keeps his eyes on the most talented players across the globe.

The Ivory Coast international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of winger Rodgers wants to target in the winter transfer window.

The Foxes will have funds to spend in the market and it will be interesting to see how they approach the winter transfer window.

The former Sassuolo man will add a new dimension to Leicester’s attack. His arrival would give Leicester some much needed tactical flexibility.

According to the report, “Leicester City are ready to try again for Atalanta winger Jeremie Boga. Tuttosport says the Foxes failed with a bid for Boga in August. However, Atalanta and Boga are willing to listen to Leicester again next month with the midfielder struggling for minutes this season, Leicester will seek to do business with Atalanta for around €9m. The Foxes aim to make room for Boga by selling Dennis Praet to Torino.”

If the Leicester can tie up a cheap deal for the player, it may not be a bad signing by any means.

Leicester fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see if the Foxes are willing to pay the asking price for Boga.
