Luka Jovic needs match practice. He shouldn’t get this in the new season at Real Madrid either. A loan is therefore in the room. Interest should also come from the Bundesliga.
After two successful years at Frankfurt Eintracht, Luka Jovic dared to take the next career step last summer: For 60 million euros, he went to Real Madrid, where he slowly but surely followed in Karim Benzema’s footsteps.
One season, 27 games (eight of which were in the starting XI), 806 minutes played, a meager two goals and various missteps later, the emphasis is on ‘very slow’ in relation to the Benzema legacy. Because while the Frenchman had a fabulous season and is betting more than ever, Jovic has little chance of match practice in the new season.
The 22-year-old Serb urgently needs it, which is why there is another loan shop in the room. According to the Spanish Marca Real Madrid would not put any obstacles in the way of the attacker, there is interest from AC Milan, AS Monaco and the Bundesliga.
Hertha in particular is said to have been in contact with Jovic. After Jhon Cordoba from 1. FC Köln was signed, the Jovic issue in the capital is in all probability settled. However, the paper reports on other Bundesliga clubs, not named, that are showing interest in Jovic.
Which Bundesliga clubs are Jovic eligible?
Above all, Bayer Leverkusen comes to mind. After the departures of Havertz and Volland, the Werkself are still looking for offensive reinforcements. At RB Leipzig, on the other hand, a Sörloth transfer is getting closer, which should complete the planning of the Red Bulls.
Borrowing to FC Bayern or BVB would also make little sense because Jovic would only be back-up here. VfL Wolfsburg could be an insider tip if coach Oliver Glasner is planning a second real tip alongside Wout Weghorst.
Either way, there is still a lot to do at Jovic this summer – a loan would be the best solution for both the Serbs and Real Madrid. Should Jovic actually be given on loan, Los Blancos still do not want to sign a replacement. It remains with the austerity course this summer in order to be able to start the planned transfer offensive next year.
