Chelsea are the red hot favourites over Arsenal and Man Utd in the race to sign Eintracht Frankfurt scoring sensation Luka Jovic, according to the latest transfer gossip.
Jovic is joint second top scorer in the Bundesliga just three goals behind Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski and overall this season he has knocked in 23 goals in just 37 appearances.
The Serbia international is currently on loan to the Bundesliga outfit from Portuguese side Benfica, however, Eintracht has an option to make the loan deal permanent, which they are certain to do.
Once they have signed Jovic permanently they will then flip him with immediate effect bagging themselves a significant profit.
Chelsea, Arsenal and United are not the only clubs interested, Real Madrid and Barcelona are also said to be keen on the 21-year-old.
Any Chelsea transfer, however, depends on whether they get permission to make deals while their appeal against the two-window sanction is heard, in the event that they fail then that will open the door for both Arsenal and United, though the £65 Million asking fee may put them off.
