Chelsea could be in luck as Real Madrid are reportedly preparing a five-person clear-out in the upcoming summer transfer window.
And among those looking set to be offloaded by the La Liga giants will apparently be misfiring forward Luka Jovic, according to Don Balon.
This follows the Serbia international forward recently being massively linked with Chelsea by the Sun, though at the time it looked like Real would not be letting him go.
Luka Jovic shone at previous club Eintracht Frankfurt before his move to Madrid this campaign, but he’s been slow to get going at the Bernabeu.
Don Balon look to think this means Luka Jovic will be shown the door pretty quickly, alongside Mariano Diaz, Brahim Diaz, James Rodriguez, and ageing midfielder Luka Modric, despite him still having another year left on his contract.
Notwithstanding Jovic’s struggles with Real Madrid this season, Chelsea could do well to take a gamble on him if he does become available.
The 22-year-old striker surely hasn’t lost his footballing ability that quickly, and may not be quite the right fit for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
Chelsea, though, could do with more options upfront after a frustrating season in which Frank Lampard has had to rely on inexperienced young prospect Tammy Abraham, with Michy Batshuayi and Olivier Giroud not offering much as a backup.
