Tottenham Hotspur’s hopes of landing Luka Jovic are surely slipping away after a recent report linked a number of top European clubs with the hotshot striker.
Jovic has been a longstanding target for Spurs, dating back to when he was at Red Star Belgrade, back in 2015 (Daily Mail).
And then Calcio Mercato reported in October that Tottenham were keen on Jovic again ahead of the January transfer window.
With Son Heung-Min, Dele Alli and Harry Kane missing for various reasons, January seemed the perfect time to pounce.
But Tottenham’s hesitation will surely cost them in this pursuit as Europe’s big clubs circle.
According to Goal, Barcelona are in pole position to sign the 21-year-old sensation from Eintracht Frankfurt in the summer.
The report adds that Real Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are readying moves for Jovic.
It comes as no surprise to see so many clubs linked with the Serbia international, given his stunning hit rate of 19 goals in 27 Bundesliga and Europa League games this season.
The ex-Benfica striker is one of the most natural goal scorers in Europe and Tottenham’s chances of signing him are looking slim now.
Jovic could have been the perfect partner to compete with Kane in North London but that ship seems to have sailed.
