Chelsea monitoring Jovic situation at Real Madrid

Chelsea are monitoring Luka Jovic's situation at Real Madrid.

The Blues have already completed the capture of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner but manager Frank Lampard wants to further bolster his options.

Mundo Deportivo says Chelsea are 'closely' following Jovic.

Jovic, 22, earned his £55million transfer to Real Madrid after an outstanding two-season spell with Eintracht Frankfurt.

The seven-cap Serbia international scored 36 goals and provided nine assists in 75 appearances - helping the Bundesliga side reach the Europa League semi-final stage.

But things haven't gone according to plan since signing a six-year contract with Zinedine Zidane's side.

Jovic has managed just two goals in 25 appearances for Real Madrid and those came during thrashings of Osasuna and rock-bottom Leganes.
