Arsenal are reportedly preparing a loan offer with an option to buy for Real Madrid flop Luka Jovic.
Head coach Mikel Arteta is looking to bolster his attacking options, as Alexandre Lacazette’s contract at Gunners expires in the summer.
According to football reporter Ekrem Konur Arteta has identified Jovic as a potential option upfront for the north London side.
The Serbian moved to Madrid off the back of an exceptional campaign with Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt.
Then just 20-years-old Jovic became the youngest man in Bundesliga history to bag five goals in a game when he ran riot against Fortuna Dusseldorf.
He scored 17 times over the season, as well as ten in 14 during Frankfurt’s Europa League campaign.
The 23-year-old has struggled to impose himself at Real Madrid similarly to how he did in Germany, and even a loan move back didn’t help rediscover his form.
