Chelsea boss Sarri: It'll be great to face wonderful striker Jovic

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has expressed his admiration for Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic.

The two teams will meet in the Europa League semifinals with Jovic, who is a target for several European heavyweights, to lead the line for the Germans.

Chelsea have been linked with Jovic and Sarri said after victory over Slavia Prague: "We did very well in the first half and of course we are really happy to reach a European semi-final because we know that is not easy.

"To reach the final would be great for us but we need to study Eintracht Frankfurt very carefully now because they are a great team with a wonderful striker in Luka Jovic."
