Report: Wolves want Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic as Raul Jimenez replacement

According to The Athletic, Wolves are keen on signing Real Madrid outcast, Luka Jovic, as Nuno Santo seeks a short-term replacement for Raul Jimenez.

Jimenez is expected to miss a period of time after his horror head injury a few weeks ago and Wolves are now in the market for a new striker when the window opens in a few days’ time.

Jovic, then, has emerged as the key target for Nuno Santo, with the Serbian firmly out of favour in Madrid having struggled since completing a big-money move to the club from Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 23-year-old has only appeared four times in La Liga this season and is yet to score. A loan move for Jovic, then, could well be something he is open to in the winter.

Prior to being at Madrid, he was known for being a lethal goalscorer. Indeed, he has five in just eleven games at international level, while he scored 27 the season before signing for Real while at Frankfurt.

Just because you fail a bit at Real Madrid doesn’t mean you are a poor player and Jovic has so much to offer to the cause if he can get going.


Good in front of goal and with a useful turn of pace, he should slot nicely into the attack at Wolves while Jimenez recovers.

Nuno Santo is desperate for a focal point with Fabio Silva still young and adapting to the league. Jovic, it seems, could be the ideal signing for the short-term at least.
