Chelsea revive interest in Real Madrid star?

Luka Jovic news

Jovic on EPL radar

Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic is reportedly attracting interest from the likes of Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur ahead of the summer transfer window.

Jovic made the move to Los Blancos from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer for £50m but he has since struggled to impress with just two goals from 24 appearances in all competitions.

The Serbian has recently been excluded from the matchday squad for the past three games for Los Blancos and AS claims that Zinedine Zidane would be more than happy to part ways with the marksman.

It is added that an initial loan agreement could be on the cards for the forward, who is on the radar of Premier League duo Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur as well as Napoli in the Serie A. 

Chelsea were widely fancied to pursue the 22-year-old striker last summer but their chances diminished after they were handed with a two-window transfer ban by FIFA. 

The west London side are expected to go on a spending spree at the end of the campaign and they are understood to be eyeing a new striker in addition to a central midfielder and left-back.

Jovic has made just five starts for Los Blancos in the league and European games this season with Karim Benzema continuing to command the role of the centre-forward under Zidane.
