New Monaco manager Niko Kovac wants Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic as his first signing and has held talks with the Serbia international, sources have told ESPN.

Kovac has replaced Robert Moreno following his sacking and the former Bayern Munich boss traveled to Monaco with his agent, Fali Ramadani, who also represents Jovic.

The striker has failed to make an impact at Madrid, scoring just twice in 26 appearances in all competitions after joining from Eintracht Frankfurt for €60m a year ago. He was also criticised for breaching the coronavirus lockdown and hurting his foot while doing so. He flew home to Serbia and was then photographed breaking rules regarding social distancing.

Kovac managed Jovic at Frankfurt and is keen on a reunion with the 22-year-old, with a loan the most likely option at this stage.

Monaco and their new sporting director Paul Mitchell are planning for a big summer. They must sell a lot of players to reduce their first-team squad but will have between €100m and €150m to spend.
