Fiorentina close to deal for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic

Fiorentina are closing on a deal for Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic.

Sky Italia says Fiorentina are in advanced talks to sign Jovic on a straight loan.

A deal is expected to be confirmed this morning, with Jovic due in Florence next week.

Real are set to pay 50 per cent of the player's wages next season.

The 24-year-old was signed by Real Madrid for €63m from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019, but he has struggled to settle in Spain.
