Premier League side Arsenal may have suffered a huge blow to their plot to secure the summer move of Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic as La Liga heavyweights Real Madrid make him a primary target.
This is as per Don Balon, who suggest that the young striker’s €60million valuation and willingness to be a team player makes him one of the most perfect options over other strikers like Polish star Robert Lewandowski.
Jovic seems the real deal after netting 21 goals across all competitions this term at just 21 years, and this has in the past led to a lot of interest from bigger teams.
Recently, Marca suggested the gunners were among suitors for the striker, but they would certainly struggle to beat the reigning Champions League holders Real Madrid in a bidding battle for the Serbia international striker.
This would surely be a major blow for the North London club, who certainly need more top class players in their team next term after an inconsistent season that leaves the side on the brink of an early exit from the UEFA Europa League, and with no certainty of a top four end to clinch UEFA Champions League place for next term.
In other news, Gunners scouts have allegedly been in Italy to monitor AC Milan attacker Suso once more ahead of a possible transfer.
About a month ago, Italian outlet Tuttomercatoweb claimed that Arsenal had closely watched the Spaniard play for AC Milan versus Serie A rivals Cagliari.
And now football journalist Nicolo Schira suggests that on Saturday the gunners once again had club scouts keep close watch on Suso in AC Milan’s match versus Chievo.
It surely appears like Arsenal have an interest in the ex-Liverpool forward, who has immensely shone since joining the San Siro club.
The same publication have also connected Suso with Premier League giants Chelsea in time past, stating the player will cost about €50million.
