Chelsea target Luka Jovic has officially signed for Bundesliga side Frankfurt on a permanent deal.

Jovic has been on loan to Frankfurt from Benfica since the start of the 2017/18 season and the German outfit have now exercised their option to make the deal permanent this week.

The talented young forward has been linked with a host of top clubs, including Chelsea, and a summer move for the striker has not been ruled out.

Frankfurt, of course, would like to keep Jovic after signing him permanently, but could be tempted to make a substantial profit on the Serbian international.

He has been in terrific form in the Bundesliga this season, with 17 goals and five assists – along with eight goals in 11 Europa League appearances for the club so far.
