Luka Jovic had been expected to join Real Madrid, but the Eintracht Frankfurt striker instead maintains “the Premier League or Serie A would suit me well.”
The Serbia international centre-forward impressed in the Europa League this season and scored at San Siro.
Although most reports pointed towards a Real Madrid transfer, he seems to have different ideas.
“Physically the Bundesliga is very demanding. After playing against Chelsea and Inter Milan in the Europa League, I felt that the Premier League or Serie A would suit me well.
“The way those teams play suits my approach.”
The 21-year-old joined Eintracht Frankfurt from Benfica in a loan with option to move transfer for just over €7m.
Yet he is already expected to command a price-tag of €60m this summer thanks to his 27 goals and seven assists in 48 competitive games.
