In 2017, Benfica allowed Luka Jovic to join Eintracht Frankfurt for two seasons and the latter have an option to make the deal permanent after the end of this campaign.

They’ll use that option and can then make a profit with a quick sale, with Tottenham said to be one of those keen.

The striker scored eight goals in 22 league appearances, that includes only nine starts, last term, but has improved this season, scoring 15 goals in the Bundesliga and seven more in the Europa League.

Barcelona have been linked with Serbia international and Friday’s edition of Catalan newspaper Sport claims the La Liga winners chiefs travelled to San Siro to watch him in action against Inter Milan on Thursday.

It is also claimed there are other clubs across Europe ‘interested’ in the striker. Tottenham interest is mentioned and Spurs are described as ‘one of the most important teams in the Premier League’.

For some time it’s been very clear that agents are pushing the idea of a Jovic move this summer, therefore it’s likely some of the name thrown in are there for show, whether Tottenham are in that bracket remains to be seen.
