Luka Jovic is set to leave Real Madrid on loan for the 2020/21 campaign, with Roma currently leading the pack for a deal, with Milan and Inter Interested too.

In the 2018/19 season, Jovic emerged as one of the most promising young strikers in Europe after his exploits with Eintracht Frankfurt, contributing to 33 goals over the course of the campaign with 27 scored himself plus six assists in all competitions.

It earned him a huge €60 million transfer to Real Madrid, but he has failed to live up to expectations so far, with Zinedine Zidane preferring veteran striker Karim Benzema in the centre forward role.

Zidane remains a fan of Jovic, though, and has approved a loan deal away from the club to aid his development.

According to AS, they are keen to loan the Serbian to the club who will provide him with the most first-team football.

At the moment, that appears to be Roma, as if he were to move to Inter or Milan he would be slightly further down in the pecking order behind Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez at the former or Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ante Rebic at the latter.

One current stumbling block is the loan fee which Roma are currently trying to lower, while it wouldn't be a problem for either Inter or Milan.

The Rossoneri remain hopefully of the deal as they currently have Brahim Diaz on loan from Real Madrid so have successfully negotiated a recent loan deal with the Spanish champions.

Another option for Jovic is reportedly Manchester United, but that is believed to be the least likely scenario at the moment.
