Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly added Fiorentina’s Stevan Jovetic to Real Madrid’s list of strikers to consider this summer.
Los Merengues are seen as in the market for a forward this summer, in light of Gonzalo Higuain’s expected departure.
Edinson Cavani and Luis Suarez have primarily been linked, but their high valuations of €63m and €47m respectively has Madrid apparently considering other options too, in light of otherwise pooling resources to fund a €90m move for Gareth Bale.
Reports in England suggest that former Arsenal and Juventus target Jovetic is one such alternative, lower-priced forward that the capital club are now considering.
It is understood that Ancelotti has added the 23-year-old to the club’s list of possible recruitments this summer.
Jovetic has previously been valued by his club at €30m, but it is believed that a bidding from Madrid may start at €22m.
