Luka Jovic, watched by Liverpool, Barcelona & Bayern Munich, is the youngest ever player to score five goals in a Bundesliga match
21st December 2018

With Serbian forward Aleksander Mitrovic making a name for himself in the Premier League, some clubs might want to take a punt on his international strike partner.

Eintracht Frankfurt wonderkid Luka Jovic is going the right way to make a name for himself, excelling in his second season at the Bundesliga club.

Jovic, 20, has hit the back of the net 15 times in 21 games in all competitions, which has reportedly drawn the attentions of Barcelona, Liverpool and Bayern Munich to his talents.

Back in October, the 5ft 11" striker became the youngest player to score five goals in a single Bundesliga match.

He was also the first Eintracht player to hit the back of the net that many times in a game in the 7-1 demolition of Fortuna Dusseldorf.



Jovic currently sits level in the goalscoring charts with Robert Lewandowski and Marco Reus, and is just one behind Borussia Dortmund's Paco Alcacer.

It's left his employers purring about his ability.

"He has outstanding skills in the box," Eintracht Frankfurt's sporting director Fredi Bobic told Sky Sports Germany.

"He showed us last year what he can do and now it's his turn to show how far he can go. He has everything to become a world class player."


Jovic is in the second of his two year loan deal, with Frankfurt having the option to buy him permanently from Benfica.

However, with reports suggesting the Lisbon giants want a sell-on clause should he be sold for an astronomical fee to a bigger club in the future, the deal isn't as ironed as it seems.

But, according to former teammate Kevin Prince Boateng, Jovic is on the brink of greatness.



"There's criticism that you only see Luka Jovic once a week, on a Saturday," he told Bundesliga.com.

"I have seen him every day and so can say he can become a world-class striker, because he has everything required for that.

"You can see it in training: he has football in his genes, he's a street footballer, and he has a nose for goal. He scores with his head, his right or his left.

"He has technique, a powerful shot with both feet. He simply has everything a striker needs."
