Liverpool should be looking into signing Luka Jovic after it emerged that Real Madrid are open to loan offers for the striker.
Jovic’s time at the Bernabeu has been unsuccessful since his £57m (Transfermarkt) move from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019.
He played just 17 times in La Liga during his first season, scoring twice.
Last season, he played just four games for Madrid before rejoining Eintracht on loan in January.
Now, reports suggest that Los Blancos will be willing to let him leave on loan again this summer.
Per Nicolo Schira, his agent has offered him to Inter Milan for the season.
It is unknown whether the Serie A champions have any interest in him, but what is clear is that Real Madrid are open to letting him go.
Despite going through a tough period in the last two years, we believe that Liverpool should go for him this summer if he really can be got on loan.
Jovic to Liverpool on loan suits all parties
Liverpool need a forward this summer. They are known to be on the lookout for someone in that position this transfer window.
Many believe that they could move for a natural No 9, rather than a wide attacker.
If they do go for a young striker, then Jovic is a fantastic option.
The reason for his lack of success in Madrid is Karim Benzema. Jovic simply could not displace the veteran French striker due to how well he has been playing for the last few years.
If Jovic was trusted to play every single game, we believe that he would be very highly thought of right now.
With 17 goals and five assists in the Bundesliga in 2018/19 as a 20-year-old, he clearly has talent. Real Madrid would not have broken the bank to sign him if he didn’t.
What is important to remember is that he is still just 23. He is years away from reaching his prime and could yet turn into a top level-striker.
A loan to a top side like Liverpool could be the turning point for him.
For the Reds, it would be a cheap upgrade on Divock Origi. They could negotiate an option to buy, so if he performed they could make it permanent.
If not, then they don’t lose anything. He can go back to Madrid and Liverpool can enter the market for Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe, who are available on the cheap next summer.
It is the definition of a low-risk deal with potentially very high reward.
