Everton could fancy themselves in signing Luka Jovic as Real Madrid opens door to his exit.
Real Madrid centre forward Luka Joivc is having a tumultuous time at Santiago Bernabeu ever since his €60 million switch from Eintracht Frankfurt. The Serbian was hoping that a move to the Spanish capital will be a right leap in his career.
Instead, Luka Jovic has had a harsh crash from dreamland as he has gone from a 27 goal season, being the prime face of Frankfurt attack to having a miserable goal drought, warming the bench at Real Madrid.
Nothing has gone right for the forward. Firstly his Madrid career didn’t start as he would have wanted it, failing to make the most of the given opportunities. Injuries further hampered his progression and most recently he has now undergone into self isolation after reportedly coming in contact with a Corona virus positive person. All these omens are pointing at a dull future in Madrid.
Los Blancos have had enough and are keen to end the association with Jovic. According to Marca, the La Liga giants are open to listening offers for the 22 year old. The question is should Everton be interested?

Probably yes. Luka Jovic is an outright brilliant striker who just hasn’t had a little bit of luck on his side during his first year in Madrid. Perhaps, even Real haven’t given him more than a handful chances to prove his worth and talent at such a grandeur club.
His springboard to Bundesliga stardom can’t be neglected and can be an ideal successful Premier League striker. Quick, strong build and nimble footed. He ticks every box of a lethal striker, taking his chances and not shying away from shooting at goal.
Carlo Ancelotti may tweak with his tactics next season and drifting Richarlison wide is a possibility. In such a case, Jovic can partner Dominic Calvert-Lewin up front. Both these strikers have very different set of qualities and that is why it’ll be intriguing to see these two forwards pair up.
Financially, Jovic may prove to be a costly option but the Italian manager has said repeatedly that he has full support of the Everton board in the transfer market as the Merseyside club is determined to enhance the squad quality.
