It’s not looking very likely that either Fulham or West Ham United will manage to take Jovane away from Sporting this summer.
Both clubs have been linked to the winger in the past couple of weeks, with reports from Portugal saying their bids weren’t good enough to convince the Lions.
As newspaper Record brings an update on the player’s situation today, they claim that there are two clubs are are still interested in the signing, one from England and one from Italy.
Regarding the sides who’ve been linked before, Record writes that Fulham, West Ham and Hertha Berlin all ‘bumped’ on Sporting’s demands for the sale.
Record claims that Sporting won’t let the player go for less than €20m, especially because they’ve been pretty happy with his adaptation to the centre forward position this season.
Reports from the last week claimed that both Fulham and West Ham had offered just over €15m for the transfer, and they had already warned that they’d need to improve their bids to take Jovane out of Alvalade.
