Chelsea in the hunt for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic and set to battle with Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Liverpool and Man City for the player. London club have problems in the front-line as Gonzalo Higuain and Olivier Giroud already up to 30, and they need back-up.
Serbia international is the best option in this situation as he has an impressive season and paid attention. Maurizio will do everything to add him this summer, but it won’t be easy as Los Blancos, Blaugrana, Bavarians, Reds and Citizens also planning to make a bid during the transfer window.
Luka joined the Eagles from Benfica in 2017 with a loan deal. He is one of the best centre-forwards in Bundesliga and a key figure for the club. In this campaign, Jovic already played 47 matches, scored 27 goals and made seven assists in all tournament.
It is a fantastic consequence, and he can do much more with high-class teammates. Serbian striker has contracted with the German club until 2023, and his release clause is around €55m. His price could increase during this season and become much more.
The 21-year-old centre-forward regularly plays in the national team squad and also made appearances in the 2018 World Cup which is already a significant achievement for the attacker. He also helped Eintracht Frankfurt to reach the Europa League semi-final, but after losing in a penalty shoot-out against Chelsea, they kicked out from the competition.
Blues heavily linked with Juventus attacker Paulo Dybala, Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale, Sporting superstar Bruno Fernandes, Ajax winger Hakim Ziyech and Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele.
