Report: Tottenham and Chelsea to be offered chance to sign striker Luka Jovic

Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic has reportedly been made available to both Tottenham and London rivals Chelsea.

According to the Daily Star, Spanish giants Madrid will offer the £50million star to both Premier League clubs in the summer.

It is understood that Spurs and Chelsea have both previously looked at the 22-year-old, plus the duo are in the market for a new attacker in the next transfer window.

The report explains that the Serbia international will be offered to the two English clubs, but it’s unclear on if they are still keen on his signature.

Jovic has had an extremely tough debut year at the Bernabeu, with just two goals and two assists in 24 games across all competitions for Madrid.

He announced himself on the European stage the previous season with 27 goals across all competitions for German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt and that lead to a big Madrid transfer.

TBR’s View:

Jovic may have struggled during a first season at Madrid, but he’s hardly the first player to fall into that trap and it would be foolish to write him off at this stage.

He’s still a young talent with immense potential if his Frankfurt performances are anything to go by, as he showed that he can score goals comfortably with both feet and is good in the air too.

A fresh move to the Premier League could be a blessing in disguise for him and Spurs desperately need a quality centre-forward in their squad to provide cover for talisman Harry Kane.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have a number of striker options at Stamford Bridge, but an in-form Jovic could be better than anything they have right now.
