Just a few months after Luka Jovic left Eintracht Frankfurt to join Real Madrid in a €60 million deal, the young striker is being linked with a return to his former club on loan.

When asked about the rumor, Eintracht Frankfurt board member Fredi Bobic doesn't want to rule out anything. Under all circumstances, he hopes to sign a new striker before Frankfurt's Europa League play-off game against Strasbourg next week.

"I won't say yes, and I won't say no. I won't take part in the rumors, it doesn't make sense. All I can say that we will do everything in our power to have a new striker on the pitch for the play-off game," Bobic told RTL Nitro.

In 20-year-old Dejan Joveljic, Frankfurt have already brought in one new striker this summer.
