'Die Adler' have exercised a purchase option in the loan deal with Benfica to tie the striker down permanently.
"Luka's development here is very pleasing. For us, there was no question that we wanted to tie him to the club permanently. He's a player with extraordinary abilities. It's important that we have tied him to Eintracht," Eintracht Frankfurt board member Fredi Bobic said, as quoted on the club's website.
Bobic has previously stated that the purchase option to sign Jovic was below €7 million.
Jovic, 21, has scored 34 goals in 67 appearances for Frankfurt since he joined the club on loan in 2017.
