Chelsea will be desperate to forget about yesterday’s result as they were on the receiving end of a heavy 6-0 defeat at the Etihad.
The Blues will be desperate to return to winning ways in the Premier League after putting in an embarrassing performance against Manchester City, with the top four race now wide open.
Sadly, it looks as if they’re about to miss out on a possible transfer target, as according to Frankfurter Allgemeine (via Goal.com), Chelsea have been tracking Luka Jovic but Barcelona are closing in on a deal for the forward.
It’s understood that Barcelona are closing in on a deal to sign highly-rated forward Luka Jovic, who has established himself as a star in the Bundesliga in the current campaign.
Jovic currently has 19 goals to his name in 27 appearances for Eintracht Frankfurt, on loan from Benfica.
Interestingly, Chelsea and German giants Bayern Munich have also been tracking a Serbia international.
But, with Barca reportedly closing in on a deal to sign the striker, it appears as if Maurizio Sarri is set to miss out.
Luka Jovic, who is valued at £36 million (by Transfermarkt), is arguably one of the most promising forwards in the whole of world football, so it comes as no surprise that Chelsea have been tracking him.
Although, with Barcelona seemingly closing in on a deal to sign the forward, it appears as if the Blues will now have to turn their attention elsewhere.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
