Eintracht Frankfurt star Luka Jovic's father, Milan, has confirmed that FC Barcelona are interested in his son.

But, apparently, the highly-rated striker is keen on staying at Eintracht Frankfurt - particularly if they qualify for the Champions League.

"Luka has indeed had inquiries, including from Barcelona. But he isn't interested. He doesn't know if he would get to play there," Jovic's father told Bild and added:

"He wants to qualify for the Champions League with Eintracht and stay there."

Jovic, who has also been linked with Real Madrid and Bayern München, has scored 24 goals in 38 appearances for Frankfurt this season.
