Frank Sinclair has claimed Luka Jovic may struggle to get in the Chelsea side if he signs in the summer transfer window.
It is no secret that Frank Lampard is keen to improve this side with some big time signings, and reports in the media have suggested he will indeed get the £200 million it will take to sign some top-class, big-time names players in the summer, with Jovic on the shopping list.
Jovic joined the Spanish giants last summer after an outstanding campaign with German side Eintracht Frankfurt in which he netted 10 goals in the Europa League including strikes in both legs of the semi-final against the Blues.
However, he has struggled for playing time in Spain with only four La Liga starts so far this season, and according to many reports in the media, he is all set to depart the Spanish giants at the end of the season, with Stamford Bridge his most likely destination.
But speaking to GentingBet, Sinclair said: “Luka Jovic is a very good player but when you look at centre-forwards, he’s pretty similar to Tammy Abraham in the way that he leads the line.
“Taking into consideration that he’s struggled to get into the Real Madrid team, if he can’t get into the Real Madrid team, will he be able to get into the Chelsea team and do well?
“I’d be quite reserved when it comes to Chelsea signing Jovic. Just because you’re leaving a club of the size of Real Madrid, it doesn’t automatically mean that you’re going to come to a club like Chelsea, settle in and score goals in the Premier League because it is a different ask for players that have come from abroad.”
