Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic in high demand, wanted by Napoli

The situation of out-of-favour Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic is being monitored by several European clubs including Napoli, report Diario AS.

The 22-year-old joined Los Blancos in a landmark €60m deal last summer from Eintracht Frankfurt but he has started only four league games and has found himself frozen out of Zinedine Zidane’s plans.

Indeed, the latest report states that the Serbian is 19th on the list of minutes this season for Madrid (playing 21.75% of minutes available) despite no injuries while he has now slipped behind Mariano Diaz in the selection process.

He has netted two goals and provided two assists for the club which means a participation in a goal, on average, each 192.5 minutes.

One link behind Jovic choosing Naples is his agent Fali Ramadani, who represents Napoli trio Kalidou Koulibaly, Nikola Maksimovic and Diego Demme, enjoying strong relations with the club.

Serbian striker Jovic was prolific for Frankfurt last season and he netted a devasting 27 goals for the club, including 10 in the Europa League.

That prompted the Bundesliga club to trigger their purchase option on a deal from Benfica, before selling permanently to Madrid – where he has failed to dislodge primary attacking star Karim Benzema.
