Despite the rumours that Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic is set to sign for Real Madrid, his recent comments give the likes of Liverpool and Manchester United hope of bringing him to England.
The Serbian forward has been a revelation since his arrival on Germany, Frankfurt brought him in on a two year loan deal from Benfica and exercised their option to sign him permanently this summer.
It seemed that Real Madrid had tied up the deal for the striker, who are looking to overhaul their underachieving squad of this season. But news has broke that they have backed out of negotiations, deterred by the £90m price tag.
But speaking to Marca, Jovic has expressed his admiration for the Premier League and Serie A, citing they suit his style of play more;
“On a physical level, the Bundesliga is very demanding,” Jovic said.
“But after playing against Chelsea and Inter, I personally felt that I could feel even better [playing] in the Premier League or Serie A.
“Due to the way they play, teams suit me more there.”
There will be plenty of suitors for the 21 year old in England and Italy. Manchester United, Liverpool and even Manchester City could be looking at a forward who could not just increase the quality of the current squad, but be a player for the future.
In Italy, Inter Milan may need to replace Mauro Icardi whilst Roma and Juventus are clubs who need to revitalise their aging squads.
