The father of Eintract Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic as told the likes of Chelsea that the young man wants to stay put this coming transfer window.
Gonzalo Higuaín has been impressive at times for his new club and already has three goals to his name, but there is speculation that we are looking to sign a more long-term answer to their problems, as the Argentine is coming towards the back end of his career and Jovic has been linked with a move.
Recent reports have claimed we have already made a £39 million offer to sign the hitman, but that has been swiftly rejected by the German side.
But now it seems they will not be making a move for the high-rated striker after his father announced that Jovic wants to help Eintract qualify for the Champions League and stay put this coming summer window.
His father told BILD: “Luka has had inquiries, including from Barcelona, but he isn’t interested. He doesn’t know if he would play there. He wants to qualify for the Champions League with Eintracht and stay.
Meanwhile, Guillem Balague has claimed that our pending transfer ban will have a big impact on the immediate future of winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.
Hudson-Odoi has been tipped to become the clubs next rising superstar and eventually take over from star man Eden Hazard, who is tipped to leave the club at the end of the season and sign for Spanish giants Real Madrid, but there has been a lot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few moths which have all suggested that he wants to leave at the end of the season and make the move away from Stamford Bridge, especially since he rejected a reported £85,000-a-week contract.
However, the likelihood of that happening looks slim after a transfer ban imposed on Chelsea by FIFA, as Balague explained on his YouTube channel.
“Hudson-Odoi is still thinking of leaving Chelsea but Chelsea don’t want to let him go,” the Spanish journalist said.
“I believe there is no buy-out clause for him and, of course, this transfer ban may be suspended.”
