Sunday’s edition of AS has a big article on Luka Jovic and the possibility of the striker leaving Real Madrid in the winter transfer window.
The striker has only been given 95 minutes by manager Carlo Ancelotti so far this season, split across seven appearances in La Liga and the Champions League. That clearly isn’t enough for the 23-year-old, and therefore he’s willing to ‘listen to offers’ for a move in January.
Jovic still holds a dream to succeed at Real Madrid, explain AS, but he’s now being ‘logical’ and realising that his situation needs to change sooner rather than later. Whilst he’s giving everything in training to try and convince Ancelotti, an exit is on the cards.
When it comes to a destination, no club has yet come forward, but it’s believed there’s interest from the Premier League, with AS saying ‘especially Arsenal’.
Mikel Arteta’s side have been repeatedly linked with Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic recently, and Jovic would be a much easier to sign alternative for Arsenal.
There’s no suggestion from AS of the cost of a permanent transfer or the structure of a temporary deal, although the latter could be very tempting for the Gunners.
With Jovic having a Real Madrid contract lasting until June 2025, there’s clearly the possibility of a loan move, so Arsenal could see how the Serbian takes to life in English football.
