Chelsea are still chasing Eintracht Frankfurt forward Luka Jovic despite being threatened with a transfer ban.
The club appealed the ban to FIFA where it was unsuccessful but it will now be passed onto the Court of Arbitration for Sport, where the ban could be frozen for a period of time, allowing Chelsea to sign players this summer.
Should this be the case, Chelsea will reportedly be heading straight for Luka Jovic and attempt to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer, according to Football London, as cited on the Express.
The Serbian has had a prolific season in front of goal, scoring 17 goals in the Bundesliga and another 10 in the Europa League, two of which came against Chelsea in the Europa League semi-final tie, although they were not enough to send Frankfurt to the final after Maurizio Sarri’s men won the penalty shootout.
Jovic is fighting for a Champions League spot with his Bundesliga side, with Frankfurt currently sat in sixth place and one game remaining.
The Blues are looking for someone to lead with loanee Gonzalo Higuain failing to make much of an impact. Tammy Abraham is expected to return from Aston Villa where he is currently on loan, however, it is not certain he will find his way straight into the Chelsea starting XI.
It is reported that Frankfurt are demanding around £70 million for the player which could potentially put off Chelsea.
Manchester United are reportedly also interested in signing the 21-year-old, however, Chelsea will be more appealing to the striker after they secured a Champions League spot for next season.
