Real Madrid have decided to make Eintracht Frankfurt attacker Luka Jovic their main priority to add some depth to the attacking line, according to a report from La Sexta. The German club will not sell the player for less than €70 million and Los Blancos would be willing to pay around €50 million, so the negotiations between both clubs will be crucial.

Real Madrid and Eintracht have had a good relationship in the past as Jesus Vallejo played in the German club on a loan deal while they also have Omar Mascarell on their roster.

Jovic seems to be an interesting prospect and has completed some impressive performances this season. He’s still 21 years old and could get minutes as Benzema’s backup as he gets more experience and continues his development. He’s scored 25 goals this season and delivered 7 assists, solid numbers if we consider that this was his first season as a starter.
