Manchester City are keeping tabs on Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic, Goal understands.
The 21-year-old is the Bundesliga’s top scorer this season and has also attracted interest from Barcelona and Chelsea, with the Catalans understood to be at the front of the queue for his signature.
The striker is on a two-year loan from Benfica and Frankfurt are hopeful they can trigger a clause to sign him outright for €6 million (£5.3m/$6.8m) this summer, before selling him on for €60m (£52m/$68m).
Barcelona, for their part, hope to sign him for €40m (£34.3m) and that kind of price would appeal to City, who have prioritised other areas for reinforcement in the upcoming transfer window.
The Premier League champions will move for a holding midfielder and a left-back, but sources have told Goal that they have been monitoring Jovic closely in recent months.
It is not yet clear whether City are ready to make a concrete move, as the Premier League club have form when it comes to biding their time over transfer targets.
