CHELSEA are reportedly locked in talks with Jeremie Boga over a contract extension.
Boga, 20, joined Chelsea at the age of just 12, but he is yet to make an appearance for the first-team.
He spent last season on loan at Spanish club Grenada where he made 26 La Liga appearances and scored one goal.
The versatile midfielder can play anywhere in a front three and often occupies a No 10 role behind the striker.
His current deal expires in the summer of 2019, but French outlet FootMercato claim the Blues are ready to extend his stay.
It is said they are seeking to add another two or potentially three years onto his existing deal.
Boga is apparently attracting interest from sides in the Championship as well as Alaves, Leganes, Getafe and Deportivo La Coruna.
FootMercato also say Ligue 1 sides Metz and Bordeaux are interested too with informal discussions being held.
Chelsea are likely to send him out on loan once they come to an agreement over an extension.
But the Ivory Coast international admitted in March that he would be ready to step up to the first team should they keep him at the club for the 2017/18 Premier League campaign.
“I don’t know what will happen next season,” he said.
“But if Chelsea need me, I will be ready.”
