Chelsea handed major summer boost for Luka Jovic deal

Chelsea have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Luka Jovic, according to reports in Germany.

Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic refused to rule out the 21-goal striker leaving – but has told chasing clubs they must wait until after his clause has been triggered.

“He’s developing, he’s great, he’s scoring a lot of goals,” Bobic told Sky Sport Germany.

“What do I know? We’ll see about that, but nothing in February, and now in March, because even the big clubs have to look first. Will they be league champions? Do they play Champions League? It will be decided much later when they’ve made big offers. I’m not worried. First of all, let’s see if we can achieve something this season, that’s the most important thing.”

Bobic also said there has been no approach from Bayern.

“I do not know,” he added. “I do not know what’s going on behind my back, I can only say that officially there’s been no contact [between Bayern and Frankfurt].”
