Jovic completes Frankfurt move

18th April 2019, 08:58 by Michael Holland

Eintracht Frankfurt have wrapped up a permanent deal for Luka Jovic after he impressed on loan from Benfica.

The 21-year-old has spent the last two seasons with Frankfurt, scoring 34 goals during that time, so it is no surprise the Bundesliga club have exercised their option to keep hold.

Jovic has penned a four-year contract but there is a chance he will not be there for long as Frankfurt look to make a quick profit.

It has been suggested that both Barcelona and Real Madrid are willing to pay £60million to secure a deal, and Frankfurt will not stand in the Serbian's way.

"The development of Luka with us is very pleasing," Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic told the club's official website. "For us there was no question that we wanted to tie him firmly to the club.

"He is a player with extraordinary skills. It is important to us that we have bound him to us."
