Milan consider loan move for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic

Milan are considering a loan approach for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic – who only joined the club this summer for €60m – say reports.

The Serbian has joined Los Blancos in a €60m deal from Eintracht Frankfurt but was not likely to be a regular first-team starter this season ahead of Karim Benzema.

Gazzetta in Italy claim that the Rossoneri have earmarked Jovic as a potential addition to their frontline, while they are also considering a move for his Madrid teammate Mariano Diaz and Atletico Madrid’s Angel Correa.

The striker netted 17 goals in 25 Bundesliga starts last season, more than anyone else in the division apart from Robert Lewandowski, while he also netted 10 goals in the Europa League during his side’s run to the semi-finals.

In Madrid’s pre-season, Jovic has been deployed by Zidane both as a number nine on his own and alongside Benzema in a 4-4-2 formation but he has yet to find the net.

However, Marca previously claimed that a loan exit is unlikely with Jovic very much part of the long-term plans at the Santiago Bernabeu, even if he is a peripheral figure this season.
