Wolves interested in loan deal for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic

Wolves are interested in signing Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic on a loan deal for the rest of the season, according to Sky Sports.

The Serbian striker has failed to impress under Zinedine Zidane since joining from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt for €60 million in 2019. Wolves are in the market for a striker after their number one forward Raúl Jiménez underwent surgery after a horrific clash of heads with Arsenal defender David Luiz in a Premier League fixture last month.

Jovic has been unable to get a run in Madrid’s starting eleven this season with the outstanding form of Karim Benzema. The 23-year-old has only managed to score twice in 32 games for Los Blancos.

Jovic is represented by LIAN Sports agency, however, Jorge Mendes previously earmarked the Serbian as a potential option for Jose Mourinho when he was Manchester United manager. Jovic and Jiménez were former team-mates at Benfica, where Gestifute [Mendes’ sports agency] have worked for many years and played an important role in securing the Mexican striker’s transfer to Wolves.
