Arsenal have joined AC Milan in the battle for Real Madrid striker, Luka Jovic. With the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang still uncertain, it looks that Gunners boss, Mikel Arteta, has already pinpointed the centre-forward that he wants to replace the Gabonese striker with, should he decide to leave Arsenal.

The sport even note that he will have to appear in court when the authorities consider it appropriate, so there are already a myriad of reasons why the London giants might want to steer well clear.

Having said that, a change of scenery might do the player well, and if he can recapture his form from his time in Germany, then Mikel Arteta will have a real bargain on his hands.

Luka has had a disastrous time on and off the pitch, with the Santiago Bernabeu faithful never getting close to seeing how good he might have been. Certainly, he’s been as far removed from the version he displayed at Eintracht Frankfurt as it’s possible to be.

That’s borne out by his tally of just two goals and one assist in 15 La Liga matches and his flouting of the lockdown in Spain when he travelled back to Serbia to be with his girlfriend.
