Real Madrid target Luka Jovic 'moves out' of Eintracht Frankfurt

Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic has already began preparations ahead of his anticipated move to Real Madrid, report Diario AS.

The Madrid-based daily cites a report in German outlet Bild that the player has already moved all of his belongings out of Eintracht’s training ground ahead of a potential move.

Marca and Diario AS have both heavily linked Madrid with a move for the Serbian striker, who they say is their striking priority.

The striker netted 17 goals in 25 Bundesliga starts this season, more than anyone else in the division apart from Robert Lewandowski, while he also netted 10 goals in the Europa League this campaign.

The reports claim the Bosnian-born striker is the ‘number one choice’ at the outgoing European champions to reinvigorate their attack.

Frankfurt signed the striker permanently from Benfica in an €8m deal last month but they are now expected to sell him to Los Blancos for a sizable profit, although Benfica are entitled to 30% of any sale.

Madrid are said to hold a strong interest in the Serbian and are willing to pay €70m for his signature, say reports, while Barcelona are said to be no longer in the running.

Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain have also previously been linked to a deal.
