Blues in the battle to sign Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic and prepare to make a bid in July when the transfer window opens again. The English club have problems in the front-line as Gonzalo Higuain and Olivier Giroud already up to 30, Alvaro Morata moved to Atletico Madrid, and they need back-up.
Serbia international is a perfect choice as he has an impressive season and paid attention. Italian coach ready to spend big money on the footballer during the summer transfer window. Real Madrid, Liverpool, Man City, Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also keen to sign him, and there will be a battle for the player.
Luka joined the Eagles from Benfica this winter with a €7m deal. He is one of the best centre-forwards in Bundesliga and a real leader of the club. In this campaign, Jovic already plated 43 matches, scored 25 goals and made seven assists in all tournament.
It is a fantastic result, 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 attacker regularly plays in the national team and also made appearances in the 2018 World Cup which is a significant achievement for the centre-forward. Chelsea will do everything to add him this July, but it will be difficult as Los Blancos, Reds, Citizens, Blaugrana and Bavarians also planning to make a bid during the transfer window.
