Jovic is one of the most in-demand strikers in Europe having scored 23 goals in 37 appearances this season for Eintracht Frankfurt. Barcelona and Real Madrid are desperate to sign Jovic, who is on a two-year loan from Benfica. Eintracht will trigger an option to buy the Serbian permanently this summer.

Marca claim that while Barcelona and Real are keen on the 21-year-old, Chelsea are at the front of the queue among Jovic’s English suitors.

Eintracht will demand a monster fee for Jovic should they decide to sell this summer with some reports claiming the German side have set a £67million asking price.

Manchester City too are tracking Jovic, but Metro.co.uk understands the Sky Blues have been put off by Eintracht’s valuation.

United have a host of striking options at the club, as do Arsenal who house Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in their squad.

Chelsea are rumoured to be ready to re-start their search for a No.1 striker in the summer as on-loan forward Gonzalo Higuain has failed to impress.

Any move for Jovic though could be blocked by the fact Chelsea are facing a two-window transfer ban. Fifa rejected Chelsea’s request to have their ban frozen during the appeal process.
