Barcelona and Liverpool are reportedly among the teams watching Eintracht Frankfurt loanee Luka Jovic.

The 20-year-old is currently on loan from Benfica at the Bundesliga giants and has made a huge impact, netting 12 goals in just 15 games.

According to Mundo Deportivo, his form has caused some of Europe’s top clubs to take notice, with Barcelona and Liverpool monitoring the situation.

Their report claims that Jovic has €45m release clause in his current deal with Benfica, and that the club are undecided whether to try and cash in on the striker or build a team around him.

Luis Suarez is the only real out-and-out striker option available to Ernesto Valverde at Barca and he is understood to be keen on securing some attacking depth.

Meanwhile, Roberto Firmino does not have a plethora of competition at Anfield, and with speculation over the futures of Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi it is highly possible that Jurgen Klopp is eyeing reinforcements.
