Luka Jovic is set to join Eintracht Frankfurt on loan for the remaining six months of the season. A number of clubs like Milan and Wolves were on the lookout for the striker after his struggled move to Madrid.
Luka Jovic was considered one of the most promising talents in world football after his prolific season with Eintracht Frankfurt in the 2018/19 campaign. After scoring 27 goals in all competitions for the German side, Jovic completed his dream move to Real Madrid.
Jovic will look to find his form in Germany
Los Blancos were in desperate need of a clinical striker after a horrendous 2018/19 season where the club lacked firepower upfront. Jovic seemed to be the answer to the goal-scoring problems. However, in his debut season, the Serbian barely featured and the same has followed in his second season at Real.
Jovic is barely used by Zidane, even when Benzema was injured the manager chose Mariano over him. Jovic has featured in 32 matches in all competitions for Real Madrid has only managed to net twice; a huge shift in form since his prolific spell in Germany.
After making just four appearances in La Liga so far this season, Jovic’s long-term future continues to be speculated. As a result, both Real Madrid and Luka are eager for the deal with Eintracht Frankfurt to go through.
Although Real are not interested in a permanent sale at this point. This would leave Zidane with only 2 centre forward options for the remainder of the season. Mariano has leapfrogged the Serbian striker as the 2nd choice striker for Madrid recently. The move might help Jovic to find his form and return to Madrid in the summer.
