Sarri faces battle to convince Real Madrid target Jovic about Chelsea move

Chelsea face a battle to convince Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic about a move to London.

Jovic has been in fine form in the Bundesliga and Europa League and will line up against the Blues in that competition next month.

Blues boss Maurizio Sarri had earmarked the former Benfica ace for a summer move to Stamford Bridge to spearhead a new-look attack.

However, transfer guru Alfredo Pedulla has revealed Jovic has his heart set on joining Real Madrid, with interest from Chelsea and Barcelona knocked back.

Last week, Sarri said: "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."
