FC Barcelona 'have largely come to an agreement' on a contract with Eintracht Frankfurt striker Luka Jovic and his agent, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) understands.
However, according to the report, the clubs are yet to agree on a transfer fee. So far, Frankfurt haven't received an official offer for Jovic.
Jovic is currently on loan from Benfica, but Frankfurt boss Bruno Hübner said in October that Frankfurt intend to take advantage of a purchase option. 'Die Adler' will reportedly have to pay €10-12 million to land the 21-year-old on a permanent deal.
According to FAZ, Jovic has also been watched by scouts from Real Madrid, Bayern München and Chelsea.
Jovic has scored 19 goals in 27 appearances for Frankfurt this season.
Update: A spokesperson for Eintracht Frankfurt claims the club 'don't know anything' about FC Barcelona's reported interest in Jovic.
