Chelsea transfer news: Lampard to get his man after £54 million star told to make summer move
Dimitar Berbatov has urged Chelsea target Luka Jovic to make a move to the Premier League.
After a very impressive season in the Bundesliga last year, Jovic became hot property in the game with some of the biggest clubs in the game all linked with possible moves, but in the end it was Real Madrid who secured a transfer deal for his services.
But this season has not been the best in Madrid for Jovic and he has only managed two goals for the Spaniard, leading to rumours he could leave, and that has led to alot of speculation that he could head to the Premier League, with Frank Lampard reportedly interested in a deal, and amid all the transfer speculation, Berbatov has urged Jovic to make the move to England: “Luka Jovic is still a really young footballer and he had a great season with Eintracht Frankfurt which earned him a move to Real Madrid, at the moment things aren’t going his way but let’s not forget that he has Karim Benzema ahead of him,” the Bulgarian told Betfair.
“For me, Benzema is one of the most underrated players in football at the moment, he scores so many goals and he often doesn’t get the recognition he deserves.
“It’s difficult for Jovic, because he has to get ahead of the Frenchman, but when Zinedine Zidane gives him another chance I hope he takes it, scores goals and shows what he was doing in Germany, if not he has two choices: be patient and work hard, or go to England or somewhere else he can play.
“Like me, he is from the Balkans and we like life a bit too much at times, so I hope that success and his move to Real Madrid hasn’t gone to his head too much, that can be dangerous and he needs to be disciplined.
“I was in his position when I was at Bayer Lerverkusen, I was the same age and ahead of me was Ulf Kirsten, who was a God at Leverkusen and one of the best German strikers ever.
“I was in that position thinking ‘why the f*** am I not playing, I deserve to play, I demand to play’.
“You think lots of stupid things because you’re young and you think you know everything but with a bit of patience, hard work and good people around you to tell you the truth about the situation, it helps. That’s one option.
“The other, if you want to play immediately, you choose to go on loan or find a club that will buy you so that you play more, if Jovic is in that place right now I can see him being useful to a number of clubs in the Premier League.”
