Atalanta B.C. announces the signing of footballer Jérémie Boga from Sassuolo on a temporary basis with the obligation to make the deal permanent.
Born in Marseille on 3 January 1997 to Ivorian parents, Jeremie is a skilled forward with great technique and pace, who can dribble past the opponents: according to a recent Opta statistic, he is the player with the most successful dribbles in Serie A in the calendar year 2021. Being right-footed, he has often been lined up on the left to then burst into the box and get the shot away, making the most of his skills when one on one. However, he can cover different positions in the attack.
Jérémie is also an Ivory Coast international, with whom he made his debut in June 2017 during an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea. More recently, in September and October, he took part in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers also finding his first international goal in the 3-0 victory over Malawi. He is competing in the Africa Cup of Nations at the moment, after which he will be able to begin his spell at Atalanta.
