Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic has emerged as a surprise target for Barcelona in the summer transfer window.
According to the football transfer rumours in British media, Barcelona are surprisingly linked with Luka Jovic.
The 21-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
Luka Jovic is considered to be one of the best strikers in Serbia.
He has represented Serbia at Under-16, Under-17, Under-18, Under-19, Under-20 and Under-21 level, winning 59 caps and scoring 44 goals, before making his senior international debut in June 2018. As a member of Serbia national football team, Jovic won 3 caps.
His impressive performances this season have apparently caught the eye of some of Europe’s big clubs.
Ernesto Valverde is a long term admirer of Luka Jovic and believes he can get the most out of the Serbia international.
Barcelona are desperate to make an impact in the summer transfer window.
Jovic is a dynamic striker, who possesses good technical skills and ball control.
According to Tribalfootball (via Goal), “Barcelona are leading Chelsea in the race for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic. The Serbian has blown away prospective suitors with his performances in Bundesliga this season. On loan at Frankfurt from Benfica, Jovic has scored 19 goals in 29 appearances. Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are also keeping tabs on the 21-year-old. However, Goal reports that the Blaugrana are the frontrunners for Jovic’s signature. Frankfurt are expected to complete the permanent signing of Jovic this summer for €6m, and will then demand €60m from other clubs.”
