Chelsea manager Frank Lampard wants Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic on loan for the next season campaign.
Chelsea is in the hunt for a striker and in the previous summer, Jovic was identified as the main target before the Serbian attacker decided to join Real Madrid ahead of the Stamford Bridge outfit.
Lampard wants to make some reinforcement in the attack as he prepares for a possible exit of Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi in the coming transfer window.
Olivier Giroud is out of contract in June, and Michy Batshuayi has failed to step up. The burden has been left with Tammy Abraham.
According to SPORT, Lampard has asked the Chelsea board to sign Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic on loan next season.
The 22-year old has struggled to hit the ground running since making his big-money move to La Liga, and this kind of deal could be something that suits all parties.
Real Madrid would entertain a loan deal for the Serbian striker and a possible replacement would be signed with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez keen on signing Borussia Dortmund ace, Erling Brut Haaland.
