Eintracht Frankfurt sporting CEO Fredi Bobic has poured cold water on speculation that Luka Jovic could return to Deutsche Bank Park from Real Madrid before the transfer window closes.


"There's nothing to it at all," Bobic underlined in an interview with Bild.

When asked if he can categorically rule out a return for Jovic, who left Frankfurt to join Real Madrid for €60 million last summer, Bobic responded with a "Yes".

Bobic didn't want to rule out moves away from Frankfurt for Kevin Trapp and Filip Kostic, however.

"In general, I don't want to rule anything out until October 5, and that has nothing to do with the two players. It's a crazy transfer summer, which is very tough and difficult for everyone to grasp."

Having already spent €14 million on signing Steven Zuber and Ragnar Ache and making André Silva's loan permanent, Frankfurt will reportedly be looking to add FC Groningen winger Ajdin Hrustic to their ranks before the transfer window closes on October 5.


"You can't assume that anything huge will happen. Nevertheless, I leave all doors open, because I know what can happen in the last seven to 10 days. Things can still get turbulent with regard to transfers. In England, Spain, Italy, but also here in Germany, where there may still be a few doors open for a few players," said Bobic.
