City monitoring Serbian striker

Manchester City are keeping tabs on Frankfurt and Serbian striker Luka Jovic.

The 21-year old is in the second of a two-year loan from his parent club Benfica, and has been making a big stir with Frankfurt this season, scoring 21 goals for them in all competitions.

According to The Daily Mail, Frankfurt intend to trigger a £6 million release clause for Jovic at the end of the season, and then will look to capitalise on the situation by selling the striker at a large profit.

That has alerted a number of clubs to his potential availability, with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich all said to be tracking him as well. For their part, City are looking to supplement their forward options of Sergio Agüero and Gabriel Jesus.

The news comes on the same day that City announced they have signed the second-biggest kit deal in Premier League history. Their new ten-year deal with Puma is worth £650 million over ten years, which is eclipsed only by Manchester United’s tie-up with Adidas.
