Eintracht Frankfurt sensation Luka Jovic would be even more lethal in front of goal for Real Madrid or Barcelona, according to Felix Magath.

Jovic – who has been linked with Barca – is reportedly set to join LaLiga giants Madrid in a €60million deal after taking the Bundesliga and Europe by storm this season.

The 21-year-old in-demand Serbia international forward has scored 27 goals, 10 of those in Eintracht’s run to the Europa League semi-finals.

Former head coach Magath – who led Eintracht from 1999 to 2001 – expects Jovic to improve further away from Commerzbank-Arena.

“Luka Jovic scored both in Bundesliga and Europa League on a very consistent basis all season long,” Magath told Omnisport.

“For me there is no doubt that a player like him can be even more deadly in front of the goal playing for Real Madrid or Barcelona, where his team-mates surely would provide even more talent.”

Jovic has played a key role in Eintracht’s remarkable season, both domestically and in Europe as the Bundesliga side fly the German flag abroad.
