Wolves fans have been reacting to a claim that Luka Jovic is on the club’s transfer radar.
Sky Sports’ journalist Johnny Phillips believes the Serbia international is someone of interest to Nuno Espirito Santo, who has suggested he’ll dip into the transfer market next month.
Wolves, of course, are without Raul Jimenez right now after the Mexican fractured his skull against Arsenal.
There’s no timeframe on his return, but it seems it won’t be any time soon.
It is unsurprising, therefore, to see Wolves being linked with plenty of strikers with the winter window about to open.
Jovic has been with Real Madrid since the summer of 2019, joining from Eintracht Frankfurt for a fee reported to be around £53 million (Sky Sports) and securing a five-year contract worth £167,000-a-week.
He’s largely played second fiddle to Karim Benzema at the Bernabeu, and he’s regularly been linked with an early departure from the Spanish heavyweights.
Jovic – a former teammate of Jimenez at Benfica – proved his goalscoring prowess at Eintracht, scoring 36 times in 75 appearances.
It isn’t currently working out in Madrid, and it could be that Jorge Mendes is able to facilitate some kind of deal.
On social media, some Wolves fans were pleased to hear Jovic is reportedly on the club’s radar:

I was saying we should’ve gone for him when he was at Frankfurt, was amazing for them, would be a great signing for us
