The talented forward has been rumoured with a host of top teams in Europe, including Chelsea, and a summer move for the centre-forward has not been ruled out this summer.
Frankfurt, of course, would like to keep Serbian forward after signing him permanently, however, could be tempted to make a substantial profit on the transfer of 21-year-old forward this summer.
He has been in terrific form in the Bundesliga this campaign, with 17 goals has been on his name and five assists – along with 8 goals in 11 Europa League games for the club thus far.
Meanwhile, Spain international forward Alvaro Morata has indicated he has no intentions of making a return to Chelsea in the summer.
The 26-year-old forward has failed to impress at Stamford Bridge when he has made a switch to Chelsea from Real Madrid back in 2017.
Morata has found back of the net 24 times in 72 appearences for the West London club, however, never really became a fan favourite following his inconsistency.
The Spanish international forward has joined Diego Simeone’s side during the January transfer window on an 18-month loan spell at Wanda Metropolitano
