Chelsea ‘Offer £40m For Frankfurt’s In-Form Striker Luka Jovic’ In Transfer Fight With Barcelona

Chelsea are ready to fork out up to £40million to lure Bundesliga top goalscorer Luka Jovic to Stamford Bridge.

The 21-year-old – on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt from Benfica – is also being chased by the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.

Jovic – who has banged in 19 goals in 27 games in all competitions this season – has fired Frankfurt up to fifth in the table.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is understood to have targeted the Serbian international as a summer replacement for Olivier Giroud, 32.

And German news outlet Bild claim that Blues officials have approached Jovic’s Portuguese parent club with an offer of around £40m.

Speaking recently, Jovic said: “I feel honoured that big clubs are showing interest in me.

“But at the moment I am happy to be with Frankfurt, and I feel good with them.

“For the time being I will just focus on Eintracht. They are my top priority.”

The German side have the option to sign the Serb on a permanent deal.

Jovic joined Benfica from home-country club Red Star Belgrade in 2016, and has two years left on his contract.
