Revealed: 27-Goal Liverpool Target Hints Frankfurt Exit
Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic has given the biggest hint yet that he would leave the German Bundesliga club this summer amidst transfer rumours of a move to bigger European sides.
According to German newspaper SportBild, Serbian international Luka Jovic has cleared his locker at Eintracht Frankfurt to hint that he won’t come back to the club for the new season.
Luka Jovic has been in fine fettle of form for Eintracht Frankfurt this season and that has led to the interest of major European clubs like Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona and Champions League finalists Liverpool.

Recent reports had claimed that reigning European champions Real Madrid have agreed on a €60m deal for him to join the Spanish capital club this summer but there has been no official announcement to that effect.
Luka Jovic became an Eintracht Frankfurt player when he joined the German club on loan for two years from Portuguese giants Benfica with the option of making the transfer permanent for just €7m in addition to a 20% sell-on clause.
The €7m permanent transfer option was exercised last month before his loan deal expires this summer.
Luka Jovic scored 27 goals for Eintracht Frankfurt in all competitions during the just concluded season including 10 goals in the Europa League and 17 goals in the league.
