Luka Jovic

Luka Jovic is on the verge of ending his horror spell at Real Madrid and is all set to sign on loan for Eintracht Frankfurt, claims a report.

Goal claim Jovic’s agents are working on a deal which will take the 23-year-old back to his old club.

Jovic moved from Frankfurt to Madrid in 2019 for €60m, but his time in Spain has been a disaster.

The striker has made just five appearances this season and is not part of Zinedine Zidane’s long-term plans.

He made only four LaLiga starts last season from 17 appearances, scoring just twice.

Zidane has apparently made his mind up and does not even want the Serbia forward as back-up at the Bernabeu.

The report claims Jovic is not happy with the decision, as he was focused on fighting for his place in the Spanish capital.

 

 

Now though he is looking at a rejuvenating loan spell in Germany  until the end of the season.

He scored 36 goals in 75 appearances in all competitions for the Bundesliga side and he will be hoping to get back to that form.

Goal say that Real only want to loan Jovic and will not yet sanction the permanent sale of the player, who penned a six-year deal in 2019.

Premier League interest

West Ham have been linked with Jovic. According to Defensa Central, West Ham have ambitious plans for the January transfer window and Jovic was on their list of targets.

Wolves have also been credited with an interest in the forward.

Last month The Athletic noted that Wolves had taken the first step by launching a ‘loan enquiry’ for Jovic.

According to the Daily Star, Manchester United were keen on the player in September.

They claimed the player’s agent had reportedly told Real that their client wants to move to Old Trafford as they tried to complete a deal in September.

Talks between the agent and United were at an “advanced” stage, claimed the paper, but a deal never transpired.
