Real Madrid is ready to cash in on Luka Jovic. Arsenal is showing interest in the forward and is keen on signing him.
Luka Jovic came to Real Madrid last year for a £54m deal. The Serbian was thought to be a long-term option for their frontline. But the youngster has not been able to secure a stable spot. Hence, the Spanish club is trying to cash in on him this summer.
There are multiple interests for the forward. Arsenal and AC Milan are the top competitors for the striker. With Real Madrid happy to cash him in, the chances of an exit are possible. The youngster is also comfortable with a move away from Real Madrid. Hence, Arsenal and Milan are keeping close tabs.
Arsenal has been searching for a striker throughout the window. With Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang hinting on an exit. The Gunners are looking for other options. Their all top scoring forward is nearing an end to his contract with Arsenal. There hasn’t been any move to tie him down either. Plus, the player is also looking for an exit. Hence, Arsenal is looking to seal a deal with Luka Jovic. Despite not being at his best lately, Arteta is willing to sign the striker. But Milan is right behind them to get the Serbian’s signature.
Arsenal are desperate to sign a striker.
The Gunners have always been comfortable with their striker role. Aubameyang has been on top form at the position since his arrival. Also with the support of Lacazette, the forward was pretty stable. But now with Auba hinting on exit things are not going to be smooth. Losing their main man is the worst thing Arsenal can afford now. But with uncertainty in his future, they are looking for a replacement.
Luka Jovic was a key signing for Real Madrid. Even though he has not been able to shine at Madrid. Arsenal can make use of his services. Hence, the Gunners are trying to lure him in with a record wage fee. Arsenal is willing to pay £192,000 a week wage to the Serbian forward as per HITC Sport. This is a pretty great deal for the youngster to consider.
Arsenal will not be able to make a fight with Auba’s exit. Lacazette has also been in and out of form. In a friendly against Brentford, Arsenal lost 3-2. Though Lacazette did net a goal, he was the reason for the opposition netting as well. So Arteta needs more reinforcements in his frontline.
Jovic has an interest to shift to Milan.
Despite the high wage that Arsenal is offering Jovic is showing interest in a move to Milan. The Serb is not willing to make it a matter of money but of the game. Though Arsenal is trying to lure him in with their wage tally. The youngster’s heart is with AC Milan. And as per reports, the forward is waiting for a deal from the Italian club.
AC Milan is also reportedly showing interest towards the youngster. So Arsenal may need to move things quickly if they need to seal a deal. Else they might lose the race to Milan.
Real Madrid is ready to cash him in
Real has made the stance clear, as the youngster has not been productive. The Spanish giants are willing to sign him away if the right deal arrives. Zinedine Zidane has also been looking into a number of players this summer. Hence, he will be willing to offload the deadwood.
Real Madrid is in the market in search of an apt striker. The Spanish 9has also considered Aubameyang as an option. So this can favor Arsenal, as the Gunners could try to make a swap deal. Real wants Auba and is ready to ship Jovic off. So the clubs could meet to an agreement and make a mutual deal. But the certainty of any deal is still unknown.
