Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic has signed for the German Bundesliga club permanently despite the transfer rumours linking him with a move to several clubs on the European football stage.
The announcement of his permanent deal was made earlier on Wednesday afternoon.
Luka Jovic initially joined Eintracht Frankfurt from Portuguese giants Benfica on loan for two years until this summer with the obligation to make it permanent and the Germans have decided to turn his loan move to a permanent one earlier than planned.
The 21-year-old has been in very good form for Eintracht Frankfurt this season and it’s not surprising that his loan move has been made permanent before time.
He has signed a four-year deal at Frankfurt until the end of the 2022/23 season.
Luka Jovic has scored 17 goals in the German Bundesliga and he’s the second topscorer behind Bayern Munich hitman Robert Lewandowski.
His form has propelled his Eintracht Frankfurt side to the top four on the German Bundesliga table.
A top-four spot is enough to secure Champions League football for next season.
Serbian international Jovic and Frankfurt are still in the knockout stages of the Europa League.
Eintracht Frankfurt lost the first leg of their Europa League quarterfinal tie to Benfica 4-2 ahead of the second leg at home on Thursday night.
